Sara, 1-1/2 tsp. won't make it very sweet, it'll just cut the tang-iness.

It's funny how you can go to lots of different *authentic* restaurants, and you LOVE what they're serving, but when you get home....well, it's a different story.

Does anyone make their own olive oil/herb dip for bread?  Instead of butter, yanno.  If you do, please share.  I usually just guess.  Olive oil, some garlic powder, LOTS of ground oregano, and a little salt and pepper.

Is there a good recipe out there?
