Five. Simple. Ingredients. Seriously! That’s all that goes into this ultra-simple yet super-yummy dip. You’ll weep when you realize how easily it comes together. Okay, maybe you won’t have quite that emotional reaction, but you’re sure to be pleased at how quickly you’ll have it on the table.

Let me show you how!

Notes:
 
1. This spread is best if you allow it to come to room temperature. This really allows you to taste the flavors.

2. It’s best to choose crackers without a lot of extra flavor so they don’t overpower the dip.

3. If you wish, you could try using fresh ingredients instead of dry. However, you will need to increase the amounts since dried herbs are more “concentrated.”
