I made this to take along for Christmas lunch with the family but there was so much food nobody had a chance to try it. Mum kept it & shared it with her friends on NYE & she said everyone really enjoyed it. I'll have to make some for us now :)

YUM!! What a delightful dip!! I nuked my carrots in the microwave but made the rest of the recipe as directed. The warmer weather is coming and this will be served at many a BBQ I'm sure. I served mine with Turkish bread...but the options are unlimited.Reviewed for PAC Fall 2007.
