MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2010

I halved this recipe, spread it on 6 bagel halves, and my husband and I ate it as dinner. :-)

Didn't have green onion, parsley, or olives. Instead, I added 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Pretty good. Had plenty left over for another batch later in the week.
