Expert Tips

  • This dip tastes best warm, but it can be served cold.
  • Pepperoncinis are pickled, mildy hot, small yellow peppers. They are popular in Italian antipasti and sandwiches, as well as in Greek salads. They give this Italian-inspired dip a spicy marinagted flavor.
  • This recipe is not a deep layered dip; assemble it on a shallow, attractive microwave-safe platter or dinner plate.
