Italian White Bean Dip


Sometimes you look back and completely forget about recipes that you were at one time obsessed about. This Italian White Bean Dip was my “go to” party pleaser for the longest time! But for whatever horrible rotten reason, this recipe slipped my mind and was sadly forgotten… Until just recently when I was asked to bring a side dish to a party.

I hemmed and hawed about what I should bring. I wanted to bring something healthy, so I would have at least one recipe I could pig out on, without any guilt. 😉 priorities people.

And then like a flash of pure genius I remembered this little gem! How could I have forgotten it! It is creamy, garlicky and lemony and pure heaven!

It was definitely a celebrated reunion!

Not only was this Italian White Bean dip the hit of the party, I was asked for the recipe from quite a few new friends! I always know I hit a home run at a party when #1 – my dish I brought it in is completely cleaned out and #2 someone asks for the recipe. I am happy to report both of those telling signs occurred!
