I love Mediterranean food, and the flavors in this dip are so vibrant. We make our own mini sandwiches once this platter is complete. —Stacy Mullens, Gresham, Oregon

"I agree that this recipe calls for too much sour cream . I made this for a large crowd, so I doubled the amount of eggplant and other ingredients, but used only 8 oz sour cream for the whole dip, so the flavor of the roasted eggplant was not lost. It was delicious and made a huge quantity."

"It was good but I feel that 16 oz of sour cream was too much. I used a 12 oz container and still thought it was too much. I think next time I'll do around 8-10 oz"
