I say “again” since I posted the recipe in Live Oaks And Green Onions some time back. It’s the one thing my daughter asks me to make every time she comes home for a visit.
The recipe is a refreshing and flavor-packed creamy dip that’s super easy to prepare. And the best thing is it’s more than just a sauce for immersing. You can use it to dress up your veggies like baked potatoes or even slather it on a sandwich with your favorite meat, cheese, and bread. Or, how about rolled in a tortilla for pinwheels? So many ways to like this dip!
Start by Chopping the Herbs
Fresh herbs and vegetables can be gotten in the grocery store or grown at home. Some stores carry them in jars in the refrigerated produce section, making it convenient to keep on hand in the kitchen. I like growing them in pots by my back door for easy accessibility like my Mamaw used to do in Live Oaks And Green Onions. You should give planting them a try!
Putting the Creaminess in the Fresh Herb Dip
There are 3 well-used items found in my refrigerator. They are mayonnaise, cream cheese, and greek yogurt. It seems we can’t live without them. Together they make this dip smooth and thick.
The Greek yogurt doesn’t last very long in our fridge. One reason is its frequent use in something similar to this Pioneer Woman’s Best Yogurt Parfait Ever Recipe. I have been making it for a while, even before I saw Ree whip it up on the Food Network. The difference is I add stevia instead of the brown sugar-like she does. It’s my guilt-free snack any time of the day.
Along with chopping the fresh dill, green onion, and parsley I press a couple of garlic cloves and add them to the three creamy ingredients.
After giving them a good stir, to combine all the flavors, I cover the container and keep it in the refrigerator, and that’s it! See, I told you it was easy!
