This was EXCELLENT. I skimped just a tiny bit on the parsley, upped the basil a bit and added an extra clove of garlic. I will say that it ended up quite garlicky -- which was ok as I really like garlic -- but add garlic at your own risk.
I wanted it to be more dip-like in consistency, so I used my stick (immersion) blender to puree it a bit, leaving it a little chunky. Was quite thick, this way, but SO delicious. It was a big hit at the New Year's Eve party I attended.
Be aware that you do really need to leave time to let it sit before serving -- I made it the night before, and when I tasted it then it was VERY oniony, but by the next day it had blended and tamed nicely. I believe it's mandatory that the onion used be a sweet variety; any other kind would be to harsh, I think. If you substitute another kind of onion, you'll want to cut back considerably on the quantity, and maybe add a pinch of sugar.
I did not care for this recipe.
I wish I could give this more stars!!! This was so yummy -- once you start eating it you CANNOT stop! The fresh basil and parsley really make the flavor, so I would not recommend using the dried variety. I also added some sugar -- I didn't measure, but probably about 1 1/2 teaspoons. Thanks for sharing!
I made this dish for a birthday get-together and received great reviews. I increased the vinegar a bit, added two chopped Roma tomatoes, and gently mixed in a chopped avocado just before serving.
I make this at least once a week, i like to add olives and a can of tuna to make it a complete meal.
Prepared for Thunder BB end of season party 2/2009 and it was a big hit. Added cilantro, omitted parsley and basil, added red pepper, added cucumber. Dressing is very nice.
I have 2 friends that are very picky eaters and they loved this!
Love this! So easy. I've made this for snacking at home and I recently made it for a party at work. It gets rave reviews and everyone was curious about what it was and how it was made. I love that! Thanks for the great recipe!
