When my mother-in-law, Jennie, handed me a tub of beige dip, I have to admit, I thought it was hummus. Then she told me that it was actually something much more unique than that – it was a dip, made out of cashews. After tasting it, I knew I had to try it. She said it consisted of very few ingredients (which only intrigued me even more) – cashews, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, water, and seasoning. My version uses the peanut instead of cashews (only because of the price difference) and because of their overwhelming taste (especially when there are so many of them ground to bits,) I found I had to add a bit more seasoning and spices. Both dips were really good though, so I suggest you try both versions.
