    So much easier than preparing it from scratch and with great results! Loved it, and it was perfect to accompany our crab cakes. I made no changes, nor will I next time.  -  23 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I loved this! I used this to dip my Garlic Pita Bread Bites I made from this site and they went very well together. I will say that the resting time is needed because if you don't 'rest' your dip will taste way too much like lemon juice. If you let it sit you won't have that lip puckering lemon tang.  -  05 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome! This was just what I was looking for to spread on steak sandwiches - I did use Hellman's light mayo, but other than that I didn't change a thing. This is fabulous on sandwiches!  -  01 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
