I go this out of the local newspaper. I LOVE, LOVE this dip, in fact a friend of mine and I make it and finish it all in one sitting. Great with corn chips. My main suggestion is to have some sort of breath freshener available afterwards.

I was expecting something better, but for me making a cilatro dip for first time was ok.. I had to add salt, little bit more mayo and sour cream ..

This definitely needs salt if not eating it with a salty food like chips or pretzels; I used it as a veggie dip. I added about 1/2 tsp and it was excellent! I'm also planning to use it as a dip with Chicken Satay. A previous reviewer suggested adding some softened cream cheese and this sounds like a great idea too. In addition, I tried using a blender for a smoother consistency and it was terrific as well! One other idea...this could be used as a marinade with chicken kebobs! YUM!

Awesome, awesome flavor. Not sure what I did to screw it up, but the consistency was all wrong, very liquidy. Is it really 3 tbs of lemon juice? Also, I forgot the onion. Either way, it was really good! We poured a little over our burritos last night. Today I softened up a brick of cream cheese and blended it with that so that I could dip chips in it. AWE-SOME! Great recipe!
