"From 100 Best Appetizers Cookbook which was given to me by my swap partner MaField in the Cookbook Swap 2008. This is a nice kick to the standard salsa dips. 2 hours chill time needed before serving. **Updated 10/2009** Due to Lipton not making their soup mix available in the stores any longer, I'm suggesting following rickaholic's hint of using Knorr's Herb & Garlic Soup Mix."
Serving Size: 1 (25 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"Like others, I couldn't find the soup mix. After z-mailing Hokies, I remembered a sauce mix I used in another recipe that had the same ingredients. I replaced the Lipton with a package of Knorr Garlic & Herb Sauce Mix and it worked great! (It's found on the same aisle as gravy, taco seasoning, etc.) That being said, this is a very tasty dip! I served it with tortilla chips and we just finished off the first batch while watching the Huskies play ND. Good thing I have the ingredients to make some more. ;) **Made for Think Pink 2009**"
"I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy dips/appetizers to take to get-togethers and this one is for sure on the list! I made it for a family cookout and half the bowl was gone with only 5 of us eating it! Thanks! BTW--I didn't have a problem finding the Lipton soup mix, perhaps they started making it again?!"
"Now this is what I call a delicious dip. It's just so good. I very rarely use sour cream in dips, but I am glad I did in this one. I used a medium type salsa for this dip. I also found that this keeps well for at least two and a half days, if the top is covered."
"This was a big hit at our Superbowl party. I served it with Jalapeno Bites/recipe #91720.and pita chips. The next day I used it as a spread for a turkey sandwich! Yum. I could not find the soup mix so I used a dry salad dressing mix in the env. that was the same flavors. Thanks for a keeper recipe."
"I served this tonight with a raw veggie tray, and pita chips. Two other dips went almost unnoticed, but this one was devoured! Increased the salsa by about 1/4 cup, and stirred in a splash of fresh lime juice. Fave dipper seemed to be celery sticks- nice contrast in cold/spicy. Fun recipe, with endless possibilities!"
"very eay and had a great taste. I couldn't find the garlic soup, so used onion. Next time I see the herb soup, I'd like to try it. Made for holiday tag."
"Simple and delicious! I made this for my family today as a little snack while decorating the house for Christmas. They loved it. Thanks for sharing!"
"Wonderful receipe! Very, very easy! I found the soup mix at my local grocery store. It was made by Lipton and called Savory Herb and Garlic. Yum! I have made this recipe repeatedly now and still love the great flavor and simplicity!"
"I used a recipe for the soup mix that I found online. The dip was a little disappointing to me but my sister devoured about half of the double recipe. I think that says it all!"
"I made this exactly as the recipe read, and it was a total flop at the gathering I took it to. The garlic flavor was way too much for anyone's pallet. It overpowered the salsa so much, the only clue that it was in there were the chunks of tomato that you could see. No one liked it. If I try this again, I may try just 1/2 packet of the Lipton mix to see if that helps at all.
To those who do like this, just a note: The Lipton Garlic and Herb is available at the Bi-Lo grocery store but not Ingles near me. So if you don't find it at one store, try another. I always have some of it in my pantry because I make an Italian chicken dish with it that my DH loves."
"I made this dip today to enjoy while watching Sunday Football. It is so easy and so good! Like many others I could not find the dry soup, but I used Knorrs dry Garlic and Herb sauce mix. So tasty! I used to get a dip at Don Pablo's called Garbage Dip.( it's not on the menu) This looks and taste just like the Garbage dip."
"Made for ZWT-8 (Family Picks) & as part of assorted snacks to welcome my DH & a friend home from a fishing trip. I used a med-heat chunky salsa, the flavour was excellent & the prep could not have been easier. Even after using a chunky salsa, I still missed a textural component & I opted to add some chopped black olives to the mix. I was happy w/that modification & the fishermen were very happy too. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us."
"A quick and tasty dip we enjoyed with our potato chips! Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch."
"Very good. I did need to go to 3 grocery stores to find the soup mix. I served it with ridged potato chips. Thanks for posting it."
