Dippity do dah Day

Today's lunch at The Star is all things dippable. As in chicken wings in blue cheese dressing. Chips and salsa.

Then we've got some more exotic items. Right now there are two eggplant roasting over an open flame on the grill as the base for baba ghanoush, a Middle Eastern eggplant dip/spread. Another player from the Mediterranean: hummus, which is pureed chickpeas with some seasoning and sesame mixed in. I also put together the tomatillo salsa we had in Wednesday's Your Table, and it's a lot hotter than I'd imagined it to be.

Reviews and recipes will come later on our favorites.
