Farmers Market: Garlic Dip

This dip/sauce/spread/dressing/marinade has got to be the best thing I've ever found at the Farmers Market. I usually have to refrain from buying more each time I visit, but $6 is not a bad price for something so nutritious and delicious! I'm not a hummus fan at all (I know, what kind of vegetarian am I?) so when I came across this stuff made with cloves of garlic (my favorite!) rather than chickpeas I was all over it. I like to eat it with pretzels, but dipping vegetables is just as tasty, too!


  1. oh, wow! yummmmmm!


  2. This sounds so good, I think I need to get my hands on some.

  3. That. Looks. Awesome.
    I'm a huge fan of hummus myself, cant get enough of the stuff.
    So I'll have to try that.

  4. You are the first vegetarian I know who doesn't like hummus! haha, but this looks super good too! I must find it!

  5. That sounds so delicious! Hummus is one of those things I really enjoy out at a restaurant, but all my homemade tries and packaged versions have definitely been less than awesome.
    Have you ever tried roasting garlic? It's super easy and so sweet and delicious. Roasted garlic lasagna and roasted garlic mashed potatoes are two of my favorite things.

  6. Caroline, I loooooove roasted garlic! I could eat it in anything or just by it's plain self. So yummy!!

  7. I've never seen this dip before! I'm going to have to keep my eye out for it. looks delicious!

    Have you tried making your own hummus and just "personalizing" it to your tastes? Like I LOVE olives so I chop some up and puree them into my hummus to give it tat olive flavor? You can pretty much put anything you like in it! Not that I'm trying to force you into liking hummus or

  8. An olive dip sounds really delicious and I've never thought of it that way!

    Of course I personalize everything! Even when I go out for say, thai food, I tell them no bell peppers, add carrots and zucchini (or whatever!)

    I don't know what it is about chickpeas, I just can't get into the taste of them (even though I IMAGINE them being bland), but maybe with the help of olives.......?
