This Baba Ganoush is a traditional Lebanese recipe. It is a creamy and flavorful eggplant dip that makes a healthy side dish or appetizer.
Roasting the eggplant in the oven frees you up to prep the other ingredients. However, if you want a smokier flavor, light a fire on the grill and char the eggplant over open flames. The second option requires a bit more patience and hands-on time. Either method will give you delicious results.
Pineapple mango salsa is fast and easy to make. It has the perfect blend of sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors that goes with just about everything. It especially makes a great complement to fish, pork, and chicken but can also be used as a dip or topping for tacos, nachos, and salads.
Using a molcajete or mortar and pestle will give you the best guacamole you have ever had. Smashing the ingredients releases the natural oils and flavors in a way that you just can’t achieve by chopping with a knife.
This is guacamole done right, and it doesn't take a lot of ingredients. If you have ever had tableside guacamole at a restaurant, this is how they make it!
If you don't have a molcajete, simply use a mortar and pestle instead. If it isn't large enough to hold all the ingredients, no problem! Make a paste from the onions and herbs, then transfer it to a bowl and mash it with the avocados.

Labne (also known as labneh) is strained yogurt that is much thicker than Greek yogurt and almost as thick as American cream cheese. This cheese-like yogurt is a popular Middle Eastern dish that is used as a dip or a spread. It has fewer calories and more protein than cream cheese and has a luxuriously rich, creamy texture.
Top it with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of Za'atar, fresh herbs, and a pinch of red pepper flakes for a wonderful appetizer.
French onion soup dip is always a favorite at parties. This version is ultra-creamy and thick thanks to the addition of cream cheese. We used our homemade onion soup mix for a healthier, low sodium and gluten-free version but you can use a store-bought packet of onion soup mix just as easily.

This highly seasoned Slovakian cheese spread is best if you make it 8 hours in advance to give the flavors time to intensify. It is perfect for bagels and crackers but also gives sandwiches a special twist.
This smooth, creamy Roasted Garlic Spread is addictive! Roasting garlic magically transforms the flavor into a nutty, mellow flavor. Spread it on toasted baguette slices for a quick and easy appetizer.
Black garlic has a rich, sweet flavor that makes anything just a bit more gourmet. We used balsamic vinegar to bring out the flavor of balsamic that the black garlic has.

Cover dips. Dips should be covered to prevent insects and other contaminants from getting into them. This can be done with plastic wrap, aluminum foil, or a lid.
Use separate utensils for serving and dipping. This will help prevent cross-contamination between the dip and other foods. Use a spoon or spatula to serve the dip, and then use a clean fork or toothpick to dip your food into the dip.
Discard any leftover dip.Dip that has been left out at room temperature for more than two hours should be discarded. This is because bacteria can grow rapidly in warm temperatures, and eating spoiled dip can cause food poisoning.
