African Peanut Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This recipe comes from the Moosewood Restaurant. It is a great dip for grilled, roasted, and deep-fried vegetables, as well as strips of roasted chicken. Great for parties and snacking! It stores well, up to 2-3 weeks in the fridge, just reheat and serve!

An interesting and tasty combination of flavors. I did a rustic version, with ground peanuts and finely chopped apples and tomatoes rather than juice. I also used sweet onion. We scooped it up on crackers. The kids really enjoyed this until they knew what it was, then they looked pretty doubtful but still couldn't stop eating.
