    I could not WAIT to get home and make this last night. It was yum, yum good! I dipped my Parmesan Tuna Patties in it for dinner. (shiver) sooo delish!

    Oh my gosh!!!! This was so unbelievably good! I didn’t have fresh basil or light sour cream so I used dried basil and 0% Fage and let me tell you—WOW! Thumbs up for an awesome recipe, Linda!

    I really enjoyed the flavors of this dip. I found it on Pinterest looking for a way to use my plentiful amounts of basil from our garden. I did not use the reduced fat products and it tasted fabulously. Thanks for sharing!
