I was looking for a lower-carb alternative to my traditional onion-soup- or veggie-soup-mix-in-sour-cream. This was it! I used all dried herbs & let it sit in the fridge for quite some time so they could rehydrate & have a nice texture. I also used powdered garlic, since the recipe didn't specify. I loved the result! I might try minced garlic next time - but maybe not.
It is very very yummy!
When first mixed, this dip has very little flavor. But allowing time for the flavors to meld makes a big difference. It's still not strongly flavored, but the herb blend comes through nicely and the mildness compliments many different kinds of veggies. It would be a good alternative to packaged dips for those watching their sodium intake, but I believe it needs a little salt for balance. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
I hate to say this, but I was very disappointed. I chilled it overnight & served it for a party. It was very bland & although you could taste the herbs, it was just not very tasty. Unfortunately, my guests must've felt the same way, as I had to throw almost the entire bowl away, although they did eat the veggies. I wondered if some grated onion would've given it some flavor..I must add I used 2 tsp of fresh minced garlic.
