Dips & Dressings
Chips? Veggies? Crackers? Sandwich spreads? Salads? We’ve got you covered! These general ratios will work with just about any spice blend or seasoning, however, best to avoid those containing pods, seeds, or whole peppercorns, as these ingredients will not soften in the sour cream base.
General Ratio for Dips
1 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp spice blend or seasoning
In a bowl, combine ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least 15 minutes (flavors will heighten the longer the spices/seasonings have to "bloom"). Stir and taste; adjust with more seasoning or sour cream to achieve desired flavor.
Wanting a thicker dip? Substitute half the sour cream portion with whipped cream cheese or Greek yogurt.
General Ratio for Dressings
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup buttermilk or milk
2 Tbsp spice blend or seasoning
In a bowl, combine ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate; chill 30 minutes to thicken. Stir before serving. Adjust consistency with more buttermilk or milk, as needed.
