Garlic lovers will literally eat this up! Fresh basil gives it a lovely aroma; crushed red peppers offer a hint of heat; and sun-dried tomatoes make the creamy sandwich spread bright. Terrific on crackers, too. —Anndrea Bailey, Huntington Beach, California

"This was super easy to make, and most of the ingredients were things I already had! The dip was very creamy and tasty, and the crushed red pepper added just the right amount of kick. I know that typically it's best to let a dip rest, so I made this one the morning of, and the flavors were great. I highly recommend it!"
