I served this to my family and guests during the holidays---EVERYONE loved it! I was concerned about the herbs being too "serious," but it was perfect, and I'll make it again.
I made a double recipe, doubling all ingredients except the herbs. Very nice after a couple of days in the fridge. I'll definitely make it again, maybe adding slightly more herbs each time.
This is good stuff. I am not sure where I originaly found this recipe, but i have been making it for a long time. Since it is "seriously herby" I use it to stuff veges. Like hollowed out cherry tomatoes and radishes, celery, snow peas, and cucumber rounds. Every time I make them people ask me for the recipe.
I thought that this was really good. I served it on some sliced baguette toasts brushed with a little olive oil. I love garlic and I never care how much garlic something has but I served this at a get together and some people weren't crazy about how strong the garlic came through (so if you are serving it at something...I would suggest only 1 clove of garlic.)
Gone in a flash! Took this to a party last night and it was devoured quickly with everyone asking me for the recipe. Will definitely make this again. (I did reduce the amount of herbs by half and it all still worked very well - just made it by eye and by taste) Lovely!
I make this for a Guest Hospitality Suite every year and it is a HUGE hit every time! Try it without the Basil sometime, makes it even more "serious" <g>
This is really different! It is a good idea to let this sit in the fridge a while before serving so the flavors have an opportunity to blend.
We loved this! I made this exactly as written and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The flavors were excellent and it was very 'gourmet' tasting. This is a great recipe to use up all the fresh herbs from the garden. I would definately make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
