Happy Fourth of July!!!! What is everyone up to today?! Today, I want to share a super simple, but super delicious recipe. This recipe is for anyone who needs a last minute dish for tonight. In fact it is so simple, I made it twice in one weekend! Pimento Cheese is seriously addictive, which is why I wanted to make a lighter version of this typically mayo and cream cheese laden dip. Here’s how I accomplished that goal!
I considered naming this dip, Heaven on Earth, because seriously, that’s what it is. You know when you see a recipe, and say to yourself, “Oh my goodness, I NEED to make that TONIGHT,” but then you never actually do? No?? Well, maybe it’s just me. Anyway, I see recipes all the time, and usually really want to make them, but just simply email them to myself, or pin them to make later. HOWEVER. I saw this recipe last Wednesday, while I was reading on my lunch break and NEEDED to have it, like right then. It was calling out to me! So, I did what any crazed, sweet tooth driven person would do, hit up the grocery store on my way home from work, and whipped this up before I could even change out of my work clothes. And, I am not sorry about it! Not one bit. This was wonderful, and it’s made with nonfat yogurt and fat-free cool whip, so it’s practically health food right? Anyone still with me?
It’s no secret that I am extremely fond of Mediterranean food. If you check my refrigerator, you can find anywhere from 2-4 containers of hummus depending on what day of the week it is. However, hummus isn’t the only Mediterranean-style dip that makes me swoon. This little white guy is where it’s at! 100% full disclosure, I don’t actually think I tried Tzatziki until one fateful evening during my freshman year at JMU, when I opened up my bag of Dave’s to find a little tub of herb studded white sauce to dip those fantastic chips in. SOLD. JMU Alums know what I’m talking about! But, I digress.
Sorry things have been quiet around here, Chris and I were in Florida this weekend for a wedding! I created this Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa on a whim, because I thought my Blackened Cumin-Cayenne Tilapia needed a little something fresh to make it pop. I was pleasantly surprised by my creation, Chris and I actually ending up eating the rest of this bowl with tortilla chips. I will definitely be making this again, it’s a great twist on your typical guacamole/salsa because the grilled corn adds a nice sweetness.
One of the hors d’oeuvres Chris and I will be having on Sunday is a ’60s classic French Onion Dip. You could run out and buy a tub of this at the grocery store, but this version is so much better, and healthier. It takes about 40 minutes to caramelize the onions, and then you just need to stir in some Greek yogurt, refrigerate, and serve! You can make this dip ahead of time. Extra time in the fridge only makes the dip better!
