This is so cooling and vibrant on a hot summer day. There are other versions of Ajo Blanco on this site, but this is my version. I think as close to the traditional version as you can get but without the white bread the Spanish normally add! I spend alot of time in Spain where this dish is a classic and takes advantage of the wonderful wonderful almonds they have there. Traditionally, the Spanish use blanched almonds, but I prefer them in their natural state of course. This dish tastes better the longer you leave it and after two days, taste fabulous.
This simple Paté is wonderful on salads, lettuce wraps or as a vegetable dip. Of course it is perfect for Tacos as well! I created it after missing Mexican food for much too long... Check out RachelRaw.
Satisfy your frozen sweet tooth! I started making these one summer when I really wanted a dessert that was remotely close to being healthy. I originally made this with honey. Try it with agave nectar if honey is not part of your diet.
