I love this dip! I followed the modifications of another reviewer (1/2 lemon- juiced, 1 Tbsp chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper & sub 2 TBSP chopped fresh italian parsley for the cilantro)it's out of this world! I follow the WW Core Plan and this fits in great. It's the best served with homemade pita chips but is equally delicious with raw brocoli, celery and red pepper. I've already made this 4 times this summer!

I made this last weekend and in my opinion the lemon was overpowering. I'd use less lemon juice (maybe lime juice would be better...?). I added more cilantro and some sugar, and then this dip was ok. I'll definitely make this again, though. Just with less lemon juice!

I make this all the time, it is very similar to one that Giada makes on Everyday Italian. I reduce the lemon to 1/2 of a juiced lemon, add 2 tablespoons of fresh Italian parsley, omit the cilantro, 1 tablespoon chopped garlic and 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper. Serve with pita triangles that have been sprinkled with olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper(both fresh ground from a salt & pepper mill) and then bake the pitas for 8 minutes at 400 degrees. Fabulous with the dip and good for you too!

it tastes great with pita chips but I also think the lemon was to over powering.

Great stuff...a dip that tastes great and is not full of saturated fat. Try it with pita bread that has been cut into triangles and baked with herbs until crisp.

I could eat this with a spoon. It is so, so good. I also used parsley instead of the cilantro. I couldn't stop eating it after I tried a bite when I was finished making it. It's really good on the new Townhouse FlatBread Crisp Crackers-we had the Sea Salt and Olive Oil ones here. What a fabulous (and very inexpensive) recipe. I already bought more beans last night to make it again! Thanks for sharing this, I love it!!!

Super easy to make and one of the best dips we've had. This went over wonders with the family. My husband is an Italian chef and raved that this was one of my best yet, all his favorite flavors together. This is a keeper!!

Yummy! It's hard to judge, though, what the "juice of 1.5 lemons" is - I have a tree with very juicy lemons, so a real measurement would have been helpful. I started with one lemon and adjusted to taste. I didn't find the lemon overwhelming at all.
