I was expecting something better, but for me making a cilatro dip for first time was ok.. I had to add salt, little bit more mayo and sour cream ..
This definitely needs salt if not eating it with a salty food like chips or pretzels; I used it as a veggie dip. I added about 1/2 tsp and it was excellent! I'm also planning to use it as a dip with Chicken Satay. A previous reviewer suggested adding some softened cream cheese and this sounds like a great idea too. In addition, I tried using a blender for a smoother consistency and it was terrific as well! One other idea...this could be used as a marinade with chicken kebobs! YUM!
Awesome, awesome flavor. Not sure what I did to screw it up, but the consistency was all wrong, very liquidy. Is it really 3 tbs of lemon juice? Also, I forgot the onion. Either way, it was really good! We poured a little over our burritos last night. Today I softened up a brick of cream cheese and blended it with that so that I could dip chips in it. AWE-SOME! Great recipe!
This dip had a very strong cilantro taste, perfect for us cilantro lovers. It was good served with tortilla chips. Thanks for the recipe.
I tried this the 1st day after about 1 hour refrigeration but wasn't crazy about it. Tried it the next day with tostadas and some bread too. Finally tried dipping some jalapenos I had stuffed with cream cheese and bacon and battered and fried. That did it, YUM, had again the 3rd day with the jalapenos. Jalapenos were cold out of the fridge and it just added the perfect flavor. I might try using it on grilled fish next time. Definately will make some of the jalapenos again to go with it and of course some fish. But will definately make a day before I intend to use. Made for PAC Fall 2007
Yummy dip! I ate it with pretzels and also poured it over some cornbread! Thanks! Made for Pick a Chef 2007!
Yum! I can see how a person could eat all of this in one sitting. I ate this with tortilla chips. It very closely resembles the chimichurri sauce served at a South American restaurant I like, and they serve it with bread. It would even make a good condiment with fish, I think. Thanks for sharing!
