Serve this dip with crudités or as a spread for grownup peanut butter sandwiches made with thick slices of whole-wheat country bread, grated carrots, sliced cucmbers, and lettuce. When buying peanut butter, be sure to choose the kind labeled "natural." Since it's not hydrogenated, it won't be as creamy as regular peanut butter, but it also doesn't have the trans fatty acids. Instead, it's high in monounsaturated fat.
