Delicious, I second UmmBinat! My only change was to use all organic ingredients, and baby spinach. Do be very careful with the garlic, as Deb says, as I had to toss the first batch out because it got too browned and tasted it. Definately better if allowed to mingle overnight! I love how the simple flavours allow the vegetables you're dipping into it to truly shine. Splendid! Made for PRMR Tag - thanks, Deb!
