Thoroughly combine all ingredients in a bowl. Then, refrigerate for at least half an hour — this will allow time for the flavors to develop fully. The result is a zesty spread with a wonderfully velvety consistency.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Great!" raves reviewer Doris. "I add a little oregano to mine and it's so good on my bruschetta."

"Easy to make with ingredients normally in the pantry," says home cook MEB. "For some strange reason, I was out of fresh garlic so used granulated. Delicious. This time it was perfect for dipping steamed artichokes but I can foresee many other uses."

"Very good and so much easier than from scratch," shares dwhite0849. "For health reasons I used half mayo and half Greek Yogurt...a little tart but like everything else in life more garlic fixed it."
