Mmmm! That sounds great, thanks for sharing! I actually happen to have all those items on hand :) I know what I will be snacking on today!


Hello everyone!

Just wanted to add that you can use any type of herb to taste, not necessarily Basil. In fact, I'm not a huge fan of Basil, unless it is used in Italian or Thai Cuisine. I found the dip to be better w/Cilantro, even no herbs and using Garlic instead. Once again, this is all to subject to taste preferences.
