Fresh Herb Dip

 

Background:

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

Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

Combine everything and chill in the fridge for an hour.

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