This is a tasty, low-fat dip that is great with assorted veggies, crackers, and pita chips. I recommend letting it chill overnight to allow the flavors to develop.

This dip is a win-win; so healthy and flavorful! Who knew beans yogurt and feta worked together. The fresh herbs really make it. I followed it exactly won't change a thing in the future. Please heed Heather's advice to let it set overnight (I served mine too soon - but nearly polished it off the next day!). Not only does the flavor deepen but it thickens up. P.S. I used water packed fresh feta and will make this with Greek yogurt next time for an even creamier consistency. Thanks Heather I finally have a great tasting dip I don't have to feel guilty about!

This is off the hook! So creamy and bursting with flavor. I made a special trip this morning to the store for organic garbanzo beans/feta cheese and fresh spices. Like a previous reviewer said fresh spices are extremely important! So so good. I had to tear myself away from it. I plan on letting it sit overnight and attacking it tomorrow. This one is a keeper and a pass-it-on! A recipe at least. NOTE: My dad now makes homemade organic plain yogurt. I can only imagine how good it will be when I use that. Read More

Heather this is an excellent dip! This is truly a no guilt dip and one that's actually good for you! I used a good Greek yogurt and because I didn't have any mint I subbed with lemon thyme. Some icy cold cucumber spears made the perfect and most refreshing mode of transportation to my mouth. Yum and thank you! Read More

I liked this dip very much asdid my son- hubs not so much but he is a bit picky when it comes to hummus and pesto type dips and sauces. I did as others suggested and made it up the day before which I do believe really helped develop the flavors. We used raw cuke slices celery baby carrots and wheat crackers for dippers. Very pretty and unusual dip and so healthy! Read More

I skipped the chopping and threw everything in the food processor and let it go. I will definitely be making this recipe in the future. It is delicious! Read More

This is pretty darned good. There is something that's not quite perfect but I can't place my finger on it. As is though I have been gladly eating this for any meal with bread or crackers. Not sure I'll make it again since I can't figure out what I need to adjust to make it perfect to my taste but it was also well received at a small group gathering. Read More

LOVED this! This is one of those rare things that's both healthy AND really tasty. I will be making this a lot. Makes a good dip for veggies pita bread or even a yummy low-fat nutritious salad dressing. I will say that two cloves of raw garlic makes for a strong garlic flavor which I happen to love. But if you're not a fan of strong garlic flavor I would either use one clove or roast your garlic first. Thank you so much for this recipe! Read More
