“This is one of those so-good-you-can't-stop-eating-it party nibbles; you might even want to double the recipe. Use any combination of herbs you like; I like fresh thyme and parsley but oregano, chives or basil could be used, too. I like this served with whole-grain crackers or crispy breadsticks.”
