Capsicum Cashew Dip

Capsicum Cashew Dip

Capsicum is versatile vegetable that adds a nutrient burst to your diet. It is rich in beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C and is full of antioxidants to combat those free-radicals. It also aids digestion, boosts your immune system and energises your metabolism.

I like to serve this dip as part of a mezze plate or with cheese and olives. It also works as a healthy snack or a flavour burst to my lunch time tuna salad wrap.
