  1. My hubby always makes the dips around here, it's his kitching niche :) I'll pass this one on to him :D I would totally serve this with cucumber sticks, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, crackers, Oooo and red pepper :) Yum! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  2. My favorite way to have dips these days is to use slices of zucchini. I hope he likes it!
