Colorful and crunchy vegetable platters are a popular party appetizer today. Although veggies are tasty on their own, serving them with dip takes them to another level. Today, I’m excited to share my recipe for Really Good Veggie Dip.
This recipe comes from a deli in my hometown. I’ve been coveting their veggie dip for years and would purchase a container of it anytime I needed a good vegetable dip. I tried various recipes at home, but nothing could beat it. It is so good that whenever my sister-in-law visited St. Marys, she would buy multiple containers for herself and her friends.
For years I assumed the recipe was a closely guarded secret. However, one day as I was chatting with the cashier, the topic of the recipe came up and, without hesitation, she gave it to me! I was shocked. What I assumed to be top secret was now in my hands. No longer did I have to purchase this magical veggie dip: finally, I could make it at home.
Side note: I learned a big lesson that day. Always be kind to EVERYONE. You never know how or when your kindness will be returned. (That person just might gift you with the recipe for your favorite veggie dip!)
While I’ve had the recipe for a few months now, I’m finally getting around to sharing it with all of you. Yesterday, I taught you how to make a Sausage and Pepper Sheet Pan Dinner from your vegetable tray leftovers, so today seemed like the perfect time to circle back with the dip recipe.
As many of you know, I have a bunch of recipes with “Really Good” in their titles. In my opinion, these recipes ARE the best of the best even though I don’t call them that. This veggie dip is in that category.
If you don’t already have a go-to veggie dip recipe, this could be it.
Not only is it “Really Good,” but it’s crazy easy to make, and you probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. Just toss them into a bowl, mix them up, and your dip is ready! – I do recommend refrigerating the dip for about two hours to rehydrate the herbs and let the flavors meld.
Now which vegetable will you dip first?
Here's what you will need:
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon dried minced onions
1 tablespoon (Lawry's) seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3-4 drops Frank's Red Hot sauce
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well to combine. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
Expect RAVE reviews about this recipe. I have no doubt that you, your friends, and your family are going to love this Really Good Veggie Dip as much as I do!
