I feel like there should be a sixth star I liked this so much! I'm not much of a veggie person, but this dip is insane! Now I will have to eat veggies just so that I can use this dip! I used 2 huge heads of garlic and WHOA! (though I like garlicky food) I loved the lemon in it too, and added about 1 1/2 tbs of the fresh oregano because I didn't taste it over the garlic. In the end my toddler and I couldn't keep our fingers out of the dip...and I had made it for a party! This is going into my favorites!
