I brought this dip to a summer party and the bowl was scraped clean! I believe the original recipe came from Hellman's, though I adapted it a bit. It's wonderful with tortilla chips - try a hearty version such as the delicious Tostitos Gold. If you like a spicier dip then by all means try a hotter salsa, but goodness- don't forget to bring the beer!
This is SO GOOD and incredibly easy. I made this to go with grilled salmon in a pita with stir-fried broccoli, cauliflower, and mushrooms. Can be used as veggie dip, spread on crackers, on sandwiches, use your imagination! Recipe can be doubled or tripled to make as much as you like.
We've had this in the finer Italian restaurants here in Michigan and it's a must have when eating Italian recipes. If you are a garlic lover, you will love this and adjust the garlic to your preference. My hubby & I usually share a plate of this and I'll have 5-6 pressed cloves of garlic on my side alone!
This is really delicious, especially if you are low-carbing it. It's a great alternative to "plain" tuna salad. Can be used as a dip for celery sticks, spread on celery stalks, or stuffed in cherry tomatoes. Prep time does not include chill time, since you can leave it in the fridge for longer than the one hour mentioned in the recipe.
This is another adoption from Shelly's recipes. Shelly had suggested it to me while I was planning for a party, and I prepared it to receive rave reviews from my guests. (I guess that they liked cilantro and feta. LOL) The immeasurably cute Shelly's comments from the time of posting are as follows: From Southern Living. I made this once for a co-worker's birthday only to find out later she hates cilantro AND feta! Oops! If you like those ingredients, you'll like this simple dip. Did not include optional soaking of feta in milk in prep or cook time. Cook time is the chilling time.
This is my sister's dip. She got the recipe while backpacking in Europe a few years ago. She is now forced to make it at every party she has. People smell it cooking and stand drooling by the oven until it comes out! (Many have not been able to wait for the cooling part and burned their mouths to get to it first). You might have to make 2 portions.
**NOTE: Please CHECK the sodium content before you choose a ranch dressing mix, because it will affect the flavor! Some people have complained it is "too salty". Please also make sure you are using only a 1 ounce packet; there are other sizes from various manufacturers. Too much mix throws off the balance of flavors. My sister and I always use the Hidden Valley Ranch Original and we do not have any problems with it :)
You can also substitute half the sour cream for prepared Ranch Dressing and skip the dry mix. It will come out a bit wetter.
