Lemon-Garlic Chick Pea Dip

Hey everyone! Here's a great summer-friendly dip from Rachael Ray and a reminder that the linky for the Celebrity Cook-Along will be up on Sunday! This easy dip is very fresh and lemony, I love it!
Lemon-Garlic Chick Pea Dip
(1) 15oz can Chick Peas, drained
1 clove garlic, cracked and skinned
1 lemon, zested and juiced
4-5 sprigs fresh thyme leaves, stripped from stems
S&P to taste
A few drops of hot sauce
1/4 C olive oil
Add everything except olive oil to a food processor, turn it on and stream in the EVOO till a nice dipping consistency.
Serve with celery, cucumber, bell pepper (any veggie), grapes and potato, pita or tortilla chips.

Notes:
  • I rinsed the chick peas.
  • You do need to add some salt.
  • I can see folks noshing on it around the pool, or it would be great for bridal/baby showers.
  • If you like lemon, you will like this dip!
Have a happy day:@)
