    This is what my after-work-before-dinner snack was today... except I had no stiff veggies, or pita, or corn chips to use for dipping -- so I used a spoon!

    I love it with roasted red pepper, but everytime I've tried to make it it is not as good as store-bought. This looks different and I will try it tonight.

    I make the recipe as it is ... then add more tahini, lemon juice and olive oil if I want to until it's just right!!
