Fresh Herb Dip



This is absolutely delicious with fresh cilantro, garlic, peppers, onions, limes and parsley from our Little Farm ( or from your local Farmer’s Market). And this is where you can use non fat sour cream without a huge change in the taste of the recipe. I do!

Preparation: 10 minutes plus one hour for chilling

Cooking time: None


1 cup of mayonnaise

2 cups of sour cream ( I use non fat or low fat)

10 healthy leaves of fresh cilantro finely chopped

10 healthy leaves of fresh Italian parsley finely chopped

2 Tbsp of fresh garlic cloves finely chopped

1 Tbsp of lime juice ( use fresh – it just tastes different but if you don’t have it you could use bottled lime juice unsweetened)

1 tsp freshly cracked pepper

1/2 White or Yellow Onion finely chopped

2 Jalapeno peppers chopped ( I leave this out since we don’t like spicy food)


Combine everything and chill in the fridge for an hour.

Serve with Pita Chips or raw baby carrots, celery sticks, broccoli florets etc.
