Basil Parmesan Dip (Cooking Light)

This addictive dip is from the July '09 Cooking Light issue. I served this for dipping with pita chips and also with bread cubes. It makes a WONDERFUL sandwich spread - we put it on a turkey sandwich. The original recipe didn't call for the olive oil; I decided to add it since it only adds about 1 fat gram per 2 tablespoon serving. So you can certainly leave it out if you're watching fat grams.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  2. Serve with pita chips, bagel crisps, or bread cubes. Or use instead of mayonnaise on a turkey sandwich.

This was a predicted addictive. It was a bit tart, but I love tart salty garlic so it was impossible for me to put down. I hate it on triscuts! Mmmmm! Thanks for posting! [Made for Holiday Tag October 2009]

This was a big hit when I served it. Mine turned out a bit too garlicy for my taste, but perhaps my clove was larger. I added some softened cream cheese to balance the garlic and it was delightful! Served with fresh vegetables and pita chips.
