“Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors—it’s how you combine them that sets you apart.”
– Wolfgang Puck
Sour Cream: The star of this recipe. The secret to an ultra-creamy dip with a kick of tanginess. If you prefer, you can replace some or all of the sour cream with Greek yogurt. Be mindful though, this swap will lend the dip a slightly tangier edge.
Cream Cheese: Ensure it's at room temperature for effortless blending with the rest of the components. If you've accidentally left it in the fridge, a quick 30-second trip to the microwave can save the day. Just don't forget to remove the packaging beforehand.
Mayonnaise: This ingredient works wonderfully to soften the sour cream's tang while lending an additional layer of creaminess to the dip.
Green Onions & Herbs: We use fresh green onions, parsley, and dill in this recipe, however not everyone is a fan of fresh dill, so it is encouraged to always select your favorite herbs when making it.
Salt & Pepper: These staple seasonings are used to enhance the flavors. Adjust them according to your personal preference.
Blend the Components: Begin by assembling all of your ingredients in amounts that you prefer in the reservoir of a food processor. Pulse the machine until the ingredients are thoroughly combined and smooth.
Refrigerate: After achieving a consistent mix, transfer the blend to a suitable container. Allow it to cool and set in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes to enhance the flavors.
Serve and Savor: When ready, serve this delightful cream cheese dip along with a colorful array of freshly chopped veggies, chips, crackers or pita bread - Darcy's favorite. Some great choices include carrots, celery, tomatoes, cucumber, cauliflower, and sliced bell peppers. Enjoy your homemade dip at your leisure!
