I love dips, this is probably due to the fact I am one myself.  Basil and Sun Dried Tomato Dip is really easy to make and is an awesome addition to any party.  Bring this dip to the next get-together you are invited to, and I guarantee you’ll be asked for the recipe.

6 sun dried tomato halves, packed in oil
1 cup all natural plain yogurt
2 1/2 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed OR 1 tsp. garlic powder

1. Drain and chop sun dried tomatoes.

2. In a medium-bowl, combine sun dried tomatoes, yogurt, basil, oil and garlic; mix well. Salt and pepper to taste.

3. Chill for 2 hours to let flavors combine. (You can skip chilling if time is short)

I like to serve Basil and Sun Dried Tomato Dip with pita chips and raw veggies. It’s even great with potato chips.
