This recipe is tedious to prepare, but well worth the effort. When all the ingredients are chopped fine & combined, it looks like multi-colored gravel. This "dip" is great served with tortilla chips, or add to your favorite omelet, use as a relish topping for burgers or hot dogs, also good on a salad. Note prep time includes chill time.
I fell in love with this dip 7 years ago when I had it at a work function. It was made by my supervisor, Julie Renshaw and had been dubbed simply "Renshaw Dip" by the staff. It is SOOOO GOOD! Whenever I make it, people just gobble it down. It is best to make it AT LEAST 24 hours in advance so the flavors have time to meld together.
An excellent dip to be served with tortilla chips or crackers. I have also transferred it to a small crockpot to keep warm while serving. Adjust the onion and garlic to taste...I don't usually measure, and it isn't the same twice.
This is an old-world recipe. It is really just drained, salted yoghurt, very easy to make and very easy to preserve. I guarantee that once you have made these and tasted how delicious they are, they will become a staple in your home.
I had so many tomatoes from my garden, I did not know what to do with them. I could make salsa but I have nothing to spice it up with. Found pickled jalapenos in my frig and decided to try it. It was delicious. You can use more pickled jalapenos if you want it hotter, but this is perty dern hot.
When this was served at an office party, my husband immediately got the recipe so I could fix it at home. Makes a great appetizer when we have friends over to grill but also have used it as a side dish (usually with burgers) and taken it to parties and potluck suppers. You can serve this right after assembling it, or you can make it ahead of time and serve it chilled.
For the feta cheese lovers among us!!!! You can use the pickled peppers of your choice, pepperoncici or sweet red cherry. Cook time is actually chill time. Since this is a dip, serving size is an estimate.
This dish is so tasty that every time I bring it to a party, people always ask for the recipe and I end up scribbling it on napkins. Now I can just tell them to visit recipe zaar! NOT your typical quacamole dip! The prep time on this is high because of the chopping involved, but really it just takes seconds to throw it together. This dip can be prepared up to 5 hours ahead, but garnishes should be added at the last minute- (chopped before hand and stored individualy in the fridge). I prefer the toppings mixed together around the top because the flavors mix better, but the way it was taught to me was to do the fancier topping rings as stated below. ENJOY!
