Absolutely my favorite appetizer to date. Hubs loves it too but not his absolute fav (he loves jalapeno poppers too much methinks!) 1) We're on a low-end budget so I couldn't justify the use of olive oil for just the 'folks@home' but it was still *very* good (I'm sure w/olive oil it's better still) 2) We're predisposed to blue-cheese dressings w/a touch of sugar, so I added about a half-teaspoon or so of raw sugar which was perfect for us 3) I didn't measure anything, I just dumped what 'looked right to me' in a bowl - but used all of the ingredients listed - so this is pretty flexible, IMHO 4) I left the bowl out on the counter for a couple of hours since I forgot to make it ahead. This is good @room temp, so that worked pretty well, &yes, it tasted significantly different after sitting for that time. (no leftovers, so can't compare an overnight fridging yet) 5) I don't care for this on Ritz but like it on celery, & adore it on thinly sliced toast (used some leftover bread from Jo's Rosemary Bread from this site sliced in thin slices, toasted w/garlic oil brushed on lightly) 6) I also liked just one thin slice of turkey breast from the deli on it 7) A couple slices of the toast w/this dip spread on top & a piece of deli sliced turkey on each, together w/salad, & possibly egg drop soup - would be an ideal meal to me..... Yum! 8) Agree w/reviewer that this is good on salad too. Thanks, DEG1, for sharing. I'm sure I'll make this often for meals, on salads, &4 get togethers.
