Green Goddess Dip

on May 9, 2010

I found this recipe on the Food Network site and of course I tweaked it a bit. I made it “Genua”. So here is my adapted version of their dip. I made one batch to start to see if we like it. Needless to say it’s just about gone, so yes, we liked it. I had it with veggie sticks but you can use chips if you want. It’s a low-calorie dip so you won’t feel guilty eating a lot of it! I am going to make it again tomorrow but I am going to double it this time! It was that good! The things I tweaked were: I added 2 garlic cloves (can you believe it didn’t have garlic!), I used dried tarragon (but I will use fresh next time) and I used white wine vinegar (instead of plain white vinegar because I didn’t have any!) Be my guest to leave out the garlic and use regular white vinegar or dried tarragon. Have fun with it! It good for you!!
