A little bit healthier
Big Kitchen Instruction Book Copyright 1998
2/3 cup mayonnaise I used 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayo and 1/3 cup regular mayo
2/3 cup sour cream I used lite sour cream
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 teaspoon dill weed
½ teaspoon onion salt I used onion powder
½ teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Combine all ingredients. Chill. Serve with raw vegetables.
Makes about 1 1/3 cups.
I like to pick up a veggie tray from Costco every now and then but they come with full-fat dips that I just can't resist. And of course, I prefer the dill dip over the ranch dip and the dill dip has more calories than the ranch dip. So I thought I'd try making my own dill dip and this was every bit as good as the one from Costco's veggie tray. My son loved it. I sliced the carrots up into small strips for him so he couldn't choke on them but he basically uses the veggies as a spoon to eat the dip and sometimes he forgoes the veggies all together. I wish I could get away with that.
Gosh, I was silly enough to order a similar dip mix from Tastefully Simple for $6. I just remembered (I didn't get my order yet). Six dollars and I'll have to add my own mayo and sour cream. Yeah, I'm a sucker.
This cookbook is like my local dollar store. Both aren't very large but somehow I usually find whatever I'm looking for in them.
Question of the Day: Do you have a favorite dip?
