This is a very tasty and easy to prepare spread. I cut the recipe in half to try it and half the recipe makes lots. I did add some sour cream and 1/8 tsp onion powder. Will definitely make again.

A really good dip, although I did make a few changes - 4 -5 tbsp. preserves, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1/4 c sour cream (next time would try 1/2 c so it's smoother to spread). Great w/ Club multigrain crackers and lots for 6 people or more.

Everyone LOVED this dip. I added and extra tablespoon of apricot preserves and a friend mentioned she added onion powder to her version as well. Enjoy!

I decided to try this recipe, because I wanted something a little bit different for our small group. It was a huge hit with everyone, and people went back for seconds and thirds. I did add 1/2 a cup of sour cream, to make it a little more dippable, and we served it with crackers and veggies. Will definitely make this again!

I made this last night to share with friends at a graduation celebration. It is great! The preserves give it just a hint of sweetness, the green onions added a certain something. We had it with pretzels and cubes of beer bread. It's a keeper!

I made this for our appetizer on Christmas. Everyone said that they liked it, but there was a lot left over. You can't eat much because it is very rich. I probably will not make again.

This recipe is a quick & easy crowd-pleaser & a family favorite. Just don't over-do the preserves.
