While this is not my nanny it must have been someone’s, and IMO she knew what she was doing. This is a great simple dip that uses things almost everyone has on hand at any given time. For the purpose of showing just that I went with the dried versions as stated in the recipe, but I bet fresh ingredients could make this even better! I almost always have onions, parsley, and garlic on hand, as I am sure many others do as well.
I made this today to dip carrots in because I was hoping to keep my caloric intake a little low for the afternoon since I knew we were eating out tonight. However, once I made it and brought it into the living room to share in a sort of picnic Archer quickly decided he wanted some too, and I wasn’t comfortable with him having the carrots so I asked Jeff to grab some crackers for him to dip. Tried it with the veggie ritz crackers and it was SOOOO good. I could easily have eaten a whole sleeve of crackers that way myself.
Anyway, this is great for a crowd, either at a party or maybe a picnic or whatever. Just make sure you give it some time to chill and let the flavors marry before you serve it.
