Why I Love This Recipe
This is a tangy and garlicky traditional southern French dip. I find it is best served with raw or grilled vegetables or with steamed artichokes. May be served with cold grilled or raw vegetables such as: baby carrots, celery, peppers, artichokes, asparagus, string beans, radishes, endive, fennel, or new baby potatoes.
