Cilantro-Cumin Dip

Cilantro-Cumin Dip

Use this bright green, earthy mix as a dip for crudités or a dressing for heartier salad greens like radicchio, spinach, arugula, thinly sliced fennel, or a combination. It’s also terrific as a dressing, drizzled on a simple roasted or grilled chicken, meats or fish.

  1. Step 1

    Pour oil into a small saucepan and add cumin seeds. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and simmer very gently for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Step 2

    Put cilantro, vinegars, mustard and cayenne in the bowl of a food processor or in a blender and pulse to combine. With the motor running, drizzle in the cooled cumin oil and seeds until the mixture is emulsified and the color lightens.
  3. Step 3

    Taste and add salt and sugar as needed. Pulse once more and transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
