We go through a lot of garlic in this house. I’m one of those people who typically adds 3-4 garlic cloves at least to a recipe that calls for 1 clove. So this dip is right up my alley.

If you need another dip for the folks who don’t love garlic as much, check out these ideas that you can serve as an alternative.

Tips and Tricks

  • Herb substitution:

    So funny story….I had every intention of using parsley for this recipe. But I accidentally grabbed the bunch of cilantro out of my fridge and didn’t realize it until I had chopped it up and added it to the dip. Ya know what though….It turned out great and I really like it with the cilantro so that’s how I kept this recipe.

    However, if you are not a cilantro fan, feel free to substitute parsley.

  • Preparing the garlic:

    There are a few different ways to mince garlic including mincing with a knife, using a grater or a garlic press. Use whichever way you prefer. A grater or garlic press will produce a stronger garlic flavor than mincing with a knife so keep that in mind.

  • Make a day ahead if you can. The flavor of the garlic gets stronger as the dip sits.
