Are you ready for some football? If you are a football fan (and even if you’re not) you know that the Super Bowl is just as much about the food and the commercials as it is the big game. As a resident of this year’s host city and a Patriots fan by marriage, it has been non-stop Super Bowl talk around here for some time. While I’m hoping the Pats can pull off another win, I’m mostly excited about all of the yummy snacks that come with Super Bowl parties. And if there’s one snack that no party should be without, it’s a good dill dip. Am I right?
Well we’ve got the perfect, easy dip for you just in time for the big game. It’s full of flavor, easy to make, and is absolutely delicious on veggies, drizzled over baked potatoes, or eaten with a spoon. Friends, meet The Only Dill Dip You’ll Ever Need.
I’ve long been a fan of a good veggie tray. Over time, however, I’ve found that my love of the veggie tray is directly tied to the quality of the dip. Classic Hidden Valley Ranch? Ok in a pinch. Random whitish gel-like dip? Not ok. Hummus? Good, but sometimes you just want something a little bit more decadent. Our Dill Dip starts with a creamy base of buttermilk, greek yogurt, and mayo. A quick few turns of the whisk or a shake in a jar and you’re almost there. Chop up some fresh scallions and dill and season with salt and pepper and you are good to go. Homemade dip with twenty times the flavor of the store bought stuff!
You can absolutely make it and eat it right away, but if you can stand it, allow it to chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours (or overnight!) to really let the flavors come together. It will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. By the way, if you are looking to use this as a salad dressing, feel free to thin it out with a little more buttermilk. It is great on a classic wedge salad!
