Basil Parmesan Dip (Cooking Light)
5 mins (prep 5)
8 ingredients
1 servings
This addictive dip is from the July '09 Cooking Light issue. I served this for dipping with pita chips and also with bread cubes. It makes a WONDERFUL sandwich spread - we put it on a turkey sandwich. The original recipe didn't call for the olive oil; I decided to add it since it only adds about 1 fat gram per 2 tablespoon serving. So you can certainly leave it out if you're watching fat grams.
