Everytime I make this tasty dip, it is met with RAVE reviews and tons of requests for the recipe. Goes great with crostini, Ritz, chips, French/Italian bread....just about anything you would use a dip for! This dip can be prepared and then stored in fridge for up to 2 days before serving. The flavor gets better and more 'potent' the longer it is allowed to set up. Quick and easy to put together, letting the flavors blend is what takes the longest.
