About This Recipe

One bite. That's all it will take to sweep your taste buds away to the stunningly beautiful Greek islands.

Soak up the Mediterranean flavor with this tangy Greek dip that is almost better than being there.

I had the pleasure of showing the adorable Kym Johnson from DWTS how to make this little creation for a TV Guide segment. It came out great!
