I served this with pita chips at a party recently. It's got a good flavor and it's fairly healthy compared to a lot of party foods. I would definitely make it again.

I was going to post this myself. I have Giadis' Everyday Italian cookbook and just tried this last night. DH and I really liked it. Something different and healthy too. Giada refers to the dip as an Italian version of hummus which I think I myself prefer. Try this as a different appetizer to serve to guests. Enjoy!
