Share with your friends!

This delicious white bean dip is a great addition to any party menu. It is quick and easy to make – and your guests are sure to love the subtle balance of flavors packed into each bite. It is perfect with mildly seasoned pita chips or vegetable crudités.

Tip: A little bit of fresh sage goes a long way. If you aren’t sure how much to use, start with a small amount. Then taste and add more, if desired. Although you can use the same extra virgin olive oil for the entire recipe, adding a drizzle of a higher quality variety right before serving will add an extra “pop” of flavor.
