    This was Great! I did read some of the comments below and adjusted slightly. I took the olive oil and heated it slightly, and sauteed a plump head of garlic finely chopped. The garlic infused oil was perfect for the dip. I topped the dip with kalamata olives, also finely chopped, to provide a contrast in texture.. Thanks for the ideas!

    Simple and yummy, but it lacked a bit of depth. I added garlic too, but was still left wanting more flavor. I'll try some additional spice or another person's suggestion of a red pepper next time. I liked that this was a healthy option for my guests.
