I followed the recipe to a T and it was great. Super flavor, but it isn't intended to eat with chips as a dip, but as a topping or spread. Very good, super easy, and unique! I want to put it on everything."

This is very good. I added a can of red beans and it didn't mess with the dressing ratio at all. I used a touch less olive oil, because I'm always looking for a way to make dishes a little lighter. Yum!"

I followed this as is but added white chocolate chips as well. It was fantastic and received rave reviews from all who ate it. My kids gobbled it up to. Today I'm trying it with applesauce, but really, if you want it for a treat or special occasion, just stick with the oil.
***round 2: 1/2 c of apple sauce 1/2 c of oil = same great results...

This dish is a great twist on pasta and pesto! The pesto is so creamy. It is also great to make ahead for a party. I made the pesto the day before and it kept it's color. I brought all of the ingredients to the party and tossed it right before serving. It was a hit and people wanted more and more.""

I have never been brave enough to make my own pie crust but thought I'd give it a try and boy was I surprised at how easy it was from beginning to roll out! Not to mention the crust taste AMAZING. I will never buy crust again. Now for the filling, it tastes wonderful but can be runny. I used 1/4c cornstarch and waited till the next day. That helpe"

With a ton of recipes for this dish out there, this is finally the one I will use from now on. I love the intense flavor without the heavy oil feeling. You can change it up or follow it to a T, either way, it turns out great. For a guilty pleasure I have added high quality ramin noodles and the spice packet to the dressing. "
