Did you know that macadamia nuts are delicious? Well they are. Besides being mistaken for white chocolate chips when used in cookies and tasting phenomenal covered in chocolate (what doesn't?), macadamia nuts make a dip that is so creamy and so utterly delicious you won't believe it's not butter (based). So give it a whirl and prepare to be amazed by macadamia magic!
Your first step is to gather all the below ingredients . . .
1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts (while macadamia nuts should be the main ingredient, using a blend of cashews and macadamia
also works taste wise and often budget wise).
3/4 filtered water for blending
3 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1/3 cup cider vinegar (regular vinegar will not work! Believe me, I tried).
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons agave (Can be found out Whole Foods in the bulk aisle near the honey).
2 cloves garlic
3 teaspoons onion pwd (optional)
2 teaspoons fresh dill (image included for the herbally challenged such as myself)
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon basil (or about 2 big fresh leaves- image included for the herbally challenged such as myself))
