It's been a while since I've shared a product recommendation for Kalyn's Kitchen Picks, but last weekend I picked up a container of this Peppadew Feta Dip at Costco, and I completely loved it. This had the kind of flavor that made me take one bite and wonder why I hadn't bought it months ago when I first saw it. It's made by the same company that makes the Meza Hummus that I'm also wildly enthusiastic about, but I didn't find this dip on their website yet.
If you're not familiar with peppadew peppers, they're famous enough to have their own Wikipedia entry, and no wonder, because the flavor of these little red mildly spicy peppers is truly wonderful. Here's more about Peppadew Peppers from Slashfood. The peppers came from South Africa, but now they're available in the United States, and also many other parts of the world. This would be wonderful used as a dip for celery, cucumbers, bell peppers, or even apples, or to replace mayo on a sandwich, but keep reading to see how I ate it with another of my favorite South Beach Diet friendly products, and I also found a few recipes for peppadew peppers from other blogs.
The Meza Peppadew Feta Dip made a wonderful appetizer combined with some Carb Chopper Whole Wheat Tortillas from Santa Fe Tortilla Company. Here's the nutrition information for Carb Chopper Wheat Tortillas.
This couldn't be easier! I spread about one tablespoon of the Pappadew Feta Dip over each wheat tortilla.
Then I just rolled them up and ate them! For a fancier presentation, you could buy the bigger size of tortillas and slice them into little pinwheels.
