A great dip full of flavor, especially for those that like garlic. Perfect dip or spread for flatbread, pitas, cut veggies, tortilla chips or regular potato chips.

I may not know what "an unfortunate combination of picquancy" means but I can tell you that this dip is fabulous. It's one of those recipes that I get asked for every single time I make it. I serve it either or crackers or on veggies and it always disappears. Read More

I enjoy foods with strong flavors but this recipe is an unfortunate combination of piquancy. The mixture of raw garlic cloves feta cheese and Kalamata olives nets an end product that I do not care for. Nevertheless you can save this from being a disaster if you 1) add the juice of 1/2 lemon and 2) add 1 can drained garbanzo beans. Puree together with the rest of the ingredients in the food processor. This will change the dish into a cheesy hummus which is tasty. However the red pepper is still overwhelmed and I would suggest using only 1/2 packet of the onion soup mix otherwise your dish will be too salty. The fact that the recipe holds such a strong flavor even after the addition of 15 oz. of garbanzo beans gives you some idea of how pungent these components are when combined. It will be some time before I try this again. Read More

Awesome recipe! I made it as an appetizer for my friend's birthday party and everyone loved it! I didn't have any kalamata olives so I used regular green olives and it turned out great. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Not bad! I was looking for something different this was it. The flavors are very strong even after setting 30 mins. I let it set overnight....much better. Flavors had a chance to even out and blend seemed creamier to. I also used half the olives as I'm not real big on them and it still left plenty of strong olive flavor maybe becaused I used mediterranean style? Think I will try a milder olive next time. Served it with crispy everything bagel chips loved it! Thought they really mixed well together. I was sceptical at first but it has definitely grown on me.......will make this again since I've managed to eat most of it. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Good. Everyone at the party thought it was delicious. I used roasted garlic to add more flavor. I think next time I will add less cream cheese and more feta and sour cream. However I am not a huge cream cheese fan in general. Will make again. Taste great with pita chips and vegetables. Read More

I sent this to a party with a friend as I had to arrive late and everyone was trying to guess what was in it before I arrived. I was attacked for the recipe when I came in. The guys especially liked it. I'll be making it again. I kind of messed with the ingredient amounts as I am not real into measuring and it turned out great. Read More

This was really good. I added a little less of the feta as it was leftovers from a tub I had. Probably a good thing as it was very forward in this recipe. I also added 5 green manzillas as I had no kalamatas. It was good overall though!! Read More

We very much enjoyed this very different tasting dip with pita wedges and veggies at a work potluck. It was well received but far from a hit. Read More
