The seasoning here is just a guideline. The best is, of course, to taste and adapt the flavors to your preference. This dip is perfect to serve with vegetables and crackers to guests as an aperitif or amuse bouche.
It is also handy to keep some of it in a jar so you can easily add it to salads, or use it as a spread on a slice of whole wheat bread for a nourishing snack!
