    This is one of the best dips I have ever made and tasted.............absolutely DELICIOUS! I made the dip as posted, but instead of serving with the Lebanese bread, I used some slices of my Recipe #192012 which I toasted, only because I had a whole loaf available! To get the fennel and cumin into the flavours, I added the cumin and fennel seeds to the basil oil........and it worked perfectly! I am planning to make this again for friends this weekend, this batch was made for the Oscars NIght as nibbles, and it hit the spot. Made for the Aus/NZ recipe swap and a 10 star recipe thanks KK!
