Salt and Pepper Ice Cream Sundaes - 2Teaspoons Tap any photo to Pin Greetings from sunny California! Today I’m sharing a perfect recipe for the hot summer weather…Ice cream sundaes!

Salt and Pepper Ice Cream Sundaes - 2Teaspoons Hot fudge, fresh whipped cream, and crushed nuts = yummy, yummy, and yummy! Top my sundae off with any of this deliciousness and I’ll definitely be one happy summer camper. Sometimes I like to go a little crazy and mix things up. This is one of those times. I made salt and pepper sundaes!

Both sundaes start with my favorite vanilla bean ice cream. We made our own vanilla bean ice cream, but really any flavor would be great…it’s all about experimenting here after all. I can definitely picture caramel or butter pecan with the salty sundae and strawberry or black raspberry with the pepper sundae! Go ahead, experiment…go crazy…eat ice cream. Fun will happen 🙂

My savory tooth just love love loved the salt sundae! Vanilla bean ice cream, swirled with olive oil, sprinkled with toasted pecans, and topped off with a crack of sea salt. Oh my ice cream! It’s so buttery! It’s so creamy! It’s so divine! I think of it as a richer, vanilla-ier version of butter pecan ice cream. Just like adding salt to caramel sauce the crack of salt here does magical, creamy things to this sundae.

My tangy loving taste buds did backflips for the pepper sundae! Vanilla bean ice cream, fresh juicy strawberries and tangy balsamic vinegar glaze, all topped off with a crack of black pepper. So tangy, so peppery, so juicy, so yummy! Absolutely lovin’ it 🙂
