Here’s a cool tip for you: If you want to add a special touch to your dip, try adding a little bit of fresh sage. But be careful, because a little goes a long way. Start with a small amount and taste it. If you want more flavor, you can add a bit more.

Oh, and here’s another secret to make your dip even more awesome: While you can use regular olive oil for the whole recipe, right before serving, you can drizzle a fancy, high-quality olive oil on top. This will give your dip an extra burst of flavor that will make it even more irresistible.
