I made the greek dip to go with the chicken skewers instead of the dip they suggested and it was lovely! Really easy and quick.

Have made the Garlic & Herb dip twice and it's very tasty. I left out the lemon juice. Served it with Cheese Sticks and plain Tortilla chips. My sister in law finished the bowl with her fingers!!!

Very easy to make! made the mistake of putting two garlic cloves in the garlic dip which totally ruined it, but otherwise was nice.

Please note- the measurements are per dip (i.e 100g and 50g will make enough for 1 portion of dip).

Cucumber and mint was delicious
Chilli wasn't to my liking but my mum finished it all up!

Will probably serve these as a starter to my next dinner party along with the pittabread.

Made the Garlic & Herb and Chilli dips. Both were easy to do and tasted great, especially with the pitta crisps.
