This was quite good - meaning DH absolutely loved it. I did not have the fresh herbs so used 1 teaspoon dried thyme and 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, ground. I pressed the garlic and used 3 cloves. Overall, this was very flavorful and was served on rounds of toasted Italian bread. Will make this again as its a great appetizer, but I might experiment too, with a combo of different dressings. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.
I cut the recipe in half and pretty much followed the recipe. I did mince the garlic so the chunks weren't too big and used the fresh herbs. Put on fresh toasted bread and this was very DELICIOUS!!! Definately going into my Favorites of 2012. Made for PAC Orphanage 2012 tag game. Thank you for posting.
My neighbor moved out and gave me some salad dressings which I don't often use, but one was the sun dried, and I saw this recipe and thought why not. It was easy and quick, I used some whole wheat crackers and also triscuits and really enjoyed this. It was no work and the fresh herbs to me, really made it. It was easy and very enjoyable. Thx
I had also gotten this recipe from Kraft and was going to post this (glad I checked before). I have made this as directed and without the fresh herbs because I didn't have any on hand - both ways are great! This is always a hit at parties and I rarely have leftovers. When I do have leftovers my husband uses this on everything, plain bread, on hamburgers, mixed together as a chip dip. Very versitile!
