Top Review by Vyrianna

When giving this a try I decided to place the Italian Herbs in the mortar and pestle with just a little salt to help the grinding down to an almost powdery texture. Then instead of mincing the garlic, I used a garlic press. Unfortunately I chose to use 3 very large cloves of garlic, but am afraid that may have been too much. (My fault not the recipe; usually we like a lot of garlic). Also other than the little salt I used with the mortar and pestle I didn't add any more. I'd probably cut back on the pepper next time too, due to our preferences. May update again after the flavors have had a better chance to blend.

  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least one hour to allow the flavors to blend.
  3. Use as cheese dip or spread on crostini, for wraps or wherever else you would use flavored cream cheese.
