I love making any sort of sharing food, and this dip was a brilliant find. To make this I used the principle of making pesto but as I had none of the ingredients I used different ingredients and it really paid off! I have to say I held my breath when I tasted it and I had planned in my head what to turn it into if it didn’t taste too good, but my oh my it was delicious! It was so good that I ate a pot full with some crudités and crackers for dinner, and I even used my finger to lick round the bowl! This will definitely be on the menu next time I throw a party, along with lots of cocktails obviously 😀
