    merron-iru kami's Note:

    This Dip is a huge hit at parties because it tastes great, but it's also low in fat (or fat-free, depending on your yogurt choice) and easy to make vegan using soy yogurt. Cook time includes one hour chilling in the fridge. Enjoy!

      Wowser! This is great stuff!! I was very leary at first taste, but after sitting in the fridge over night, the flavors came through fabulously! My teenagers even enjoyed it, and that's saying a lot. Thank you so much for this terrific healthy alternative!
