A surprisingly delightful dip for any occasion. Zucchini is spiced up with a bit of garlic and oregano to create a creamy and delicious dip. This has been a hit every time I've made it! Serve with vegetables, crackers, or bread.

I made this dip for a party and was a bit unsure aobut the soy sauce. I did it using some frozen shredded zucchini and followed the directions exactly. Boy was it good. It really seasons up with a few hours in the fridge and everyone asked what kind it was. I left my zucchini with the peel on (it was shredded) and the color added to the spice! Definately a winner! Thank you for the reciepe. Read More

I did not find this recipe that great. It was a bit too sweet and seemed to lack a bit of zest. I threw mine away. Read More

Four stars for a great idea! I loved it with some modifications. I made it like I make my artichoke dip. First I like the zucchini peeled for a nicer color/appearance. Second sugar and soy sauce sounded bad and I left those out. Then I added lots more garlic a lot of finely-grated Asiago cheese and a little S&P. The dried oregano is a good addition. Awesomely delicious this way! Yum. Good with vegies or on Italian bread. Read More

Very good recipe for dipping bread. Goes well with stew. Family said this dip "rocks". I used minced garlic in place of fresh garlic chopped. Worked just as well. This recipe has a sweet taste which complements bread and meat dishes. Read More

OMG! so good! We followed the recipe except for we doubled the zucchini (had a lot to get rid off) and added extra garlic for extra zing. This stuff goes wonderfully with pita chips! Made for our 4th of july party tonight and I cant stop eating it! Do not be afraid of the soy sauce and sugar...this recipe is great as is. I would probably say if you like the garlic taste definitely add a lot more as it really makes this dip taste great. Read More

I've brought this dip to quite a few parties and everyone loves it. It's a very mild flavored dip and although I thought the ingredients would be strange together they work great. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Wow this dip is superb! I wasn't sure how we would like the recipe so I halved it. No worries there - I'm having a hard time waiting for it to finish chilling in the fridge! I used a little more garlic and a little less mayo than the recipe called for and also used honey in place of the sugar (personal preference). Thanks for a great recipe Betty. Read More
