  1. Toast the almonds: Preheat a large, heavy bottomed pan, over medium-low heat. Pour the sliced almonds in the pan in a single layer. Toss frequently until fragrant and golden brown, around 5-7 minutes.
  2. Place the toasted almonds in a high powered blender or the bowl of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade and pulse into fine crumbs. Add the garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Add the chopped roasted red peppers, olive oil, red wine vinegar, paprika, and salt, then puree until smooth.
