This recipe falls decidedly into my favorite category of recipes – SNACKS!

I almost started this post with “snacks are made for summer time eating”. But then I backspaced my way out of that one real quick because I honestly don’t think there’s a time of year where a good snack doesn’t have a place at the table. Amirite?

You guys on team snacks, too? Then you’ve gotta get in on this one. It takes the dip game to the next level.

It was one of those accidental recipes (those are my favorite!) that just sort of happened one thanksgiving when I had an extra batch of cashew cream in the fridge that I didn’t use up when making this gravy, and some extra roasted beets from this recipe. In search of a yummy snack we added those two things plus a few extra goodies to the food processor and this 5 ingredient cashew beet snack dip was born.

I’ve honestly been meaning to share the recipe with you guys for like, um, forever.. but somehow it ended up at the bottom of my blog post ideas list and I just kind of forgot about it (gasp! I know.) until my best friend who helped me come up with the recipe told me she had just made it for a party. And then I snapped back to my senses and put it right back at the top of my list.

I’m sorry. Forgive me. So silly for waiting so long.

paleo pimiento cashew cheese dip {vegan + paleo}

It’s Friday!! Which means it’s time to kick off those old work shoes, put that bottle of rosé on ice (or two), invite some friends over, and whip up a batch of this vegan and paleo pimiento cashew cheese dip for dipping ALL THE THINGS! 😍

Paleo pimiento cashew cheese dip with fresh veggies for dipping is the perfect whole food + dairy free swap for a southern classic!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in the camp of “delicious dips are life”.

In case you want to know the exact order of where my love for delicious dips falls, it goes something like this:

  1. My family and friends
  2. My cat
  3. Delicious dips

Yep. That list looks about right 😉

I’m not sure where the idea to make a pimiento cashew cheese dip came from (cuz really?! Pimiento cheese?! It’s been a loooong time since I’ve thought about that). But I think it started with a container of glistening spicy cherry peppers calling out to me at our natural foods store. Sometimes one single ingredient can be such an inspiration!

And as all the sunshine starts to inch closer and more friend and family gatherings fill our calendars, why not dream up some nutrient dense snacks that we can feel good about sharing with the one’s we love the most?
