Your best dip for crudites.

I am making a crudites platter for a party and would like to try a new, and perhaps unusual dip. Would love to know your favorites.

Hummus...easy to make and change it up to your taste.

At Thanksgiving I made this peppadew dip: https://food52.com/recipes/7464-peppadew-dip.
It is delicious. My sister stuck a finger in it and said, "Hooooly moly, that is good." It is.

Has some similarity to muhammara but no nuts, roasted peppers and peppadews.

Not unusual, but gets raves every time I serve... Ina Garten's Green Herb Dip. https://barefootcontessa.com/recipes/green-herb-dip

If we open up answers to old favorites, not necessarily new and different, I suggest
• artichoke spinach cream cheese dip;
• homemade onion dip (especially good with roasted or fried onions).

It's new to me -- so everything counts!

QueenSashy...
If you want non-dairy, there's an artichoke ticket dip I like; also tapenades.
Links for all 4 (these & previous 2) if you want.

Should read "artichoke rocket"
 
QueenSashy May 23, 2019
Yes, I think I would like non-dairy (already a lot of cheese on the table), so both artichoke rocket and tapenades you trust would be much appreciated.

I would make muhammara
 
Nancy May 22, 2019
Yes!

Ha! I am actually doing muhamara in another dish (eggplant rolls with muhamara -- it's fantastic). You ladies think great thoughts :)
