We have a local specialty market that sells all kinds of delicious things and a lot of them are made in the store so they don’t exactly come with a detailed ingredient list. I have been trying a new dip they make every week but I have come across a clear favorite. If you need a dip for veggies, pita or even a cream cheese spread this dip is the winner. It works well using full fat and low fat versions of the same ingredients and doesn’t have as much salt as the store bought ones. Using fresh dill is essential so please do not substitute.
- 1 package of light cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 cup of light sour cream
- 1/4 cup washed and finely chopped fresh dill weed
- 1 small clove garlic grated
- juice of half a lemon
- a pinch of cayenne
- salt to taste
Place all ingredients into a medium sized bowl, use a hand mixer and blend until everything is smooth and consistent. Let chill for at least and hour. Serve with pita chips and fresh cut veggies.
