Getting your ready for BBQ, heating up your grills, looking up in the sky and waving a goodbye to spring? Yeah, I know how exciting it is to invite summer and host outdoor BBQ parties. Just few more days to go.
In the meantime why not settle down with some innovative dips to compliment chips, crackers and other starters. I like my dips to be flavorful with sweet, salty and tangy taste along with lots of health so that I can indulge without guilt and serve myself hearty helpings. 🙂
When I cooked Pineapple Poppy Raspberry Dip I only knew that it’s going to be extremely beautiful in color but I had no clue that it would be bursting with so much flavor. YUM! My mouth is watering again with the thought of it. I think I will first go and quickly make this dip and come back to you all. 🙂
Pineapple Poppy Raspberry Dip is super simple to make and hardly takes 10 minutes. I simply pureed pineapple chunks and raspberries in the food processor and strained it. (I just made sure that it’s smooth because you don’t want the chunks in your mouth while enjoying your crackers and chips). In a warm pan I heated the oil a little and added poppy seeds (just loved the flavor of poppy seeds 🙂 ), Poured the fruit puree into the warm oil and added little maple syrup to give it a sweet flavor and balance the sour taste of the fruits, added salt and most importantly I added black salt so that this dip is easily digestible and gives a sweet and savory flavor to the dip. Lastly, I added crushed black pepper for the spice and served once it was cooled. Yummy!
Fortunately, my sister in law was visiting us last week and I got a chance to make a guinea pig out of her and made her the taster of my new dip recipe. I served her this dip chilled directly from the refrigerator, chilled, she loved it and finished the big bowl of this dip. She loved it with apples and crackers and encouraged me to share this Pineapple Poppy Raspberry Dip with you all. 🙂
It always gives me an immense pleasure when my friends and family happily give their honest opinions and feedback for my new recipes and are always eager to become my loveable guinea pigs. 🙂
