from "FreshDirect Recipes"

A simple dip inspired by the classic flavors of Italy. If Meyer lemons are in season, I love to use them in place of regular lemons. Serve with crostini, sliced baguette or crudités.

1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in sauté pan over medium-low heat.
2. Add onion and garlic. Stirring occasionally, cook until onion and garlic is softened and lightly golden (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
3. In a food processor (fitted with an s-shaped blade), puree white beans until smooth. Scrape down sides of the bowl as you go.
4. Add salt, remaining olive oil, zest & juice of lemon, and onion/garlic mixture. Puree until ingredients are completely blended and mixture moves easily around the bowl.
5. Scrape into serving dish and serve immediately; or cover and chill at least 1 hour and up to overnight. Let come to room temperature before serving.
