Traditional Romesco

Traditional Romesco

Tomatoes and peppers are coming in hot, haha. So, its the perfect time to make this delicious, slather on everything, sauce. Romesco is a spanish sauce that blends peak summer veggies, bread and nuts to make this impossibly creamy and tangy dip that flips the script on crudité. And of course its great on Sourdough toast! Don’t be fooled by recipes you see that skip the bread. Ive seen alot of these online, and although it would make a good sauce, its not Romesco. The bread is what makes the sauce creamy, spreadable and gives the sauce its unique texture, so don’t skip it. Also, make sure you use Sherry Vinegar, and don’t replace it with what you’ve got on hand (I’m saying this to myself as well!) The sherry vin gives it that unmistakable Tapas vibe that will get you all the way through the hottest summer on record.
