Sun dried Tomato Dip

We really try to keep healthy snacks in the fridge.  We often have hummus, sun dried tomato dip, tzatziki, or onion dip with cut fresh vegetables waiting for the post work hungries.  Right now it's all for me and B, because the kids don't do dips yet!  One day....

B hates sun dried tomatoes, but loves this dip.  It's almost reminiscent of a french dressing meets a big old block of cream cheese!  It's not at all spicy, don't be scared.

Sun Dried Tomato Dip

Puree the tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, red pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and pulse twice. Serve at room temperature.
