Dill Dip Mix
Remember the good old days when you could go to a craft show and wander your way through, stopping at all the booths that sold dip and testing out a million different varieties of garlic dip, ranch, dip, dill dip, buffalo chicken dip, and everything else in between?
Come on, you know you ate at all those places!
Well, I am here to tell you that its SO EASY to create your own dill dip that is just as good (if not better) than those any time you want, using a few spices you probably already have. You just measure them out into a jar or airtight container, then close it up and shake it around to combine them all! Done!
You can add cucuumber powder to this and make a cucumber dill dip mix that is equally awesome. I had an excess of cucumbers in my garden last year, and all I did was slice them up and put them in the dehydrator overnight. When the slices were completely dehydrated, I ground them in my spice grinder and made a fine powder that I used in this dip!
When you want to use your dip mix, you’ll need 1 cup of mayonaise, and 1 cup of either sour cream or plain greek yogurt. I acutally prefer the yogurt. Mix the two together, then add 2 tbsp of the mix. You can add more or less, but I think 2 tbsp is the sweet spot. Mix it in, and its ready to go! Now, I believe that it benefits from sitting at least 2 hours in the fridge, better if its overnight, but I’ve also eaten it straight after mixing, and its still tasty.
Either way, I hope you give it a try – its delicious!
