I love sun dried tomatoes. We buy them in bulk from Sam's Club or Costco and I love to cook with them whenever possible. So when I came across this recipe from Ina Garten on foodnetwork.com, I knew I had to try it! The recipe says to serve it at room temperature, but I found it was good chilled too.
I also found that this was great as a spread... I used it in pitas and wraps. Then I added some chicken and veggies, and I had quick, easy meal to bring to work for lunch!
Sun Dried Tomato Dip
from the Barefoot Contessa
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped (8 tomatoes)
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
10 dashes, hot red pepper sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
Puree the tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, red pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and pulse twice. Serve at room temperature.
