This is a soft, creamy dip that goes well with veggies, tortilla chips, or bagel chips. Do not use whipped cream cheese. Prep time is chill time. **Update: After reading Parsley's review, I changed the ingredients to read 1/4 cup red onion, since onions can vary in strength so much. Better to start with a smaller quantity and add more if you'd like.
Fast, simple, and delicious--great for a busy weeknight! Just add a salad and bread. During the summer I puree fresh basil and freeze it in ice trays, and that's what I use in this sauce. However, you could use 1 teaspoon of dried basil if you have to.
