Garlic Oregano Dip

"This classic dip is fast and simple," writes Sarah Vasques of Milford, New Hampshire. "I first had it at a cast party and always try to keep some on hand for snacking." TIP: "We also like it with pumpernickel bread," Sara says.

    I increased the dried oregano to 2 tablespoons, and added 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning. Because the onion flavor takes a while to permeate, this dip should be made the day before.I am editing this review now as I am making it for the second time, and wanted to add that this dip makes an outstanding pasta sauce.. if you have any leftovers. And wait.... there's more... It is terrific on a grilled ham and cheese sandwich., AND, as a topping on a grilled burger. As a volunteer field editor, it gives me pleasure to give this recipe five stars!

    Very good! Should be called onion dip though... I didn't have plain oregano so I used dried Italian seasoning instead. Turned out great and it hit the spot last night! Tastes even better the next day!
