If you have never had Peppadew peppers you are in for a treat. They are crunchy little jarred sweet red peppers with a small amount of heat jarred in a sweetened vinegar. Oh my! These are delicious. Try this easy recipe as an appetizer or a light lunch for a delicious treat! The smooth and creamy avocado and the crunchy hot sweet peppers are made for each other! Fantastic on a hot day! Remember that there is not a substitute for Peppadews that I am aware of so please use only those. You can get more info on them at peppadewusa.com, where I found this amazing gem of a recipe! Oh and do not discard the liquid in the peppadew jar! It can be used as a flavored vinegar! Hope you enjoy!
