What's your Take?

This versatile recipe works as either a dip or a spread and has a light, addictive flavor. Serve it with the Easy Pita Chips, baked tortilla chips, or cut-up vegetables. Along with a small bag of carrots and celery, it is a favorite for school lunches.

  • 1/3 cup medium-hot salsa, 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus extra for garnish (optional)
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • l small garlic clove, minced
