Needs more oil to have a better consistency otherwise it's all spices. Great flavor though once you thin it a bit.

As written, I'd say this serves one, not four! But it's kinda addicting so maybe I'm over eating with it lol! I don't change a thing when I make it (except to make more of it). I make the soft pillsbury breadsticks but I cut them in half and make short sticks out of them and use those for dipping.

I made this recipe exactly as written and loved it. I thought the balance of spices and herbs was perfect but I did thin it with more olive oil. And I agree that you MUST use good quality oil, that makes all the difference.

Way too fiery hot. I would omit or greatly cutback on the crushed red pepper

Made this last night for a girls' wine and whine night at a friend a house. Used fresh herbs (1 T fresh to 1 t dry). It was FANTASTIC and so easy! Yummo! Can hardly wait to do for my parents and family : )

i think its the olive oil that makes the difference..
of course they use all the best fresh herbs...
does anyone know a olive oil that is close tasting
they use Lamrambla ..and its too expensive to order..

My dinner guests loved this recipe. I served with bread lightly sprayed with olive oil, added salt and pepper, then toasted on the grill.
I did change the recipe just a bit - I used a 3 to 1 combination of olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette.
Tip - make lots of this! It goes quickly.

Very Good! However, I did add a bit more olive oil.

The salt should be at a about 1:3 ratio with the other spices not 1:1. For example, you could make a bigger batch using 1 Tablespoon of the herbs and 1 teaspoon of salt.
