Our Favorite Dips

Mar 9, 2010

We have been making this dip for years – it is so yummy! It comes from the LLL cookbook Whole Foods for the Whole Family, one of the best cookbooks ever.

1 C. Yogurt
1/2 – 1 C. Cottage Cheese
1/2 – 1 C. Mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Seasoning Options:
1. 1 tsp. to 1 TB. dill weed, 1 – 2 TB. minced onion, 1 tsp. garlic powder, dash of tamari or Worcestershire sauce

2. 1/2 C. minced cucumber, 2 TB. minced parsley, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 C. minced green onions

3. 1/2 C. shredded Cheddar cheese or other sharp cheese, 2 TB. grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 minced green onions (this option is our favorite – you know I LOVE cheese!)

4. 1 tsp. – 1 TB. prepared horseradish, 2 TB. minced onion

5. 1 tsp. – 1 TB. curry powder, 2 – 4 TB. sesame seeds

6. 1 – 2 TB. crushed anchovy fillets, 1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 C. minced green onions, 1 tsp. garlic powder (never tried this one – not an anchovy girl!)

7. 1 lb. fresh spinach, steamed, drained, and chopped or frozen spinach, thawed and drained and 1/4 – 1/2 C. minced green onions (our second favorite)

We make this to dip veggies and crackers in. It makes a pretty large portion, so it should last your family for several days. All the options are yummy (well, with the exception of the anchovy one…it may be yummy, but I can’t speak for it as I have never come with 10 feet of an anchovy in my life).
