The Ultimate Summer Dip

If your garden is like mine, the basil is already tall and busy.  So here is a fantastic dip to utilize it.  This creamy tomato basil spread is from the brilliant folks at Alternative Medicine magazine.  You see, not only does basil taste of summery goodness, but it is good for you, as it is full of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant goodness.  So enjoy with a light heart!

Creamy Tomato Basil Spread

3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped, drained
1 8-ounce package cream or Neufchâtel cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup basil leaves
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a food processor, combine sun-dried tomatoes, cream or Neufchâtel cheese, garlic powder, and basil leaves. Process until smooth and then blend in crumbled feta. Enjoy as a veggie dip, sandwich spread, or topping on French bread toasts with diced tomatoes
