What a mouthwatering mix of flavors and textures in this delicious spread from Greenwood, Indiana’s Brenda Martin! Mild eggplant makes a perfect backdrop for the blend of fresh garlic, dill and salty capers. “It’s also terrific on pita sandwiches or makes a great party dip.”—Brenda Martin, Greenwood, Indiana
