    AshK's Note:

    Description taken from Giada De Laurentiis' Everyday Italian: "This dip is the Italian version of hummus, and in my opinion it's smoother and tastier. This is a staple antipasto with I'm entertaining. The pita chips aren't Italian, but they work really well with this dip." We really enjoy this recipe at our house, too.

      Good and so easy a 10 year old made it. Next time we'll use less oil as it didn't seem to need the whole 1/3 cup, I would have liked it thicker. Also I think I'll use less garlic as well. For the pita we used whole wheat Greek style pitas, very good.

      Very good, hummus-like dip. My advice would be to go half on the lemon juice, salt, oregano and garlic, then add more to taste. I found I needed less of all these ingredients than was called for. I didn't measure the oil, just added until I got the consistency I wanted. Will definitely keep this recipe and make it again. Thanks for posting!

      Really, really good dip! The only thing I changed was to roast 3 heads of garlic, using all three and the oil from the roasting. I plan on using this as a dip for pita chips and as a spread for Greek wraps I'm making for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting!
