I feel like it’s been way too long since I’ve shared something I created in my own kitchen. Don’t let that fool you – I’ve been preparing a multitude of eats, trying out some recipes, making quick snacks, etc. It just seems like none of them have made their way to the blog. It’s time to change that – here’s a recipe for a dip/spread/mayo that I’ve been enjoying on a regular basis. As far as I’m concerned, I think all foods can be made fun when you add a great dip!
This dip came about when I was looking for something different to jazz up some roasted sweet potatoes I had in the oven. I rummaged through the fridge and cupboards, pulled out some ingredients that I thought might work together, and my Dill-icious Truffle Infused Dip was born.
Dill-icious Truffle Infused Dip
makes 1/2 cup
This gourmet tasting truffle and dill infused dip can be made in a snap with only 5 (or 6) simple ingredients. The addition of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt cuts the saturated fat content while maintaining a rich, creamy texture. Use it as a dip for your favourite fries, spread it on a burger, or serve it with a plate of fresh cut veggies.
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (or 1 tsp dried dill)
- 1/2 tsp truffle-infused olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Notes - I really love the flavour of truffles, so I might add a few extra drops to mine. And I find that the dip doesn’t need any salt, but that’s just my own tastes.
So, how have I enjoyed the super simple, but oh so flavourful dip?
With roasted sweet potatoes.
With a big ol’ pile of kale chips.
And even with some panko & asiago crusted zucchini fries.
I want to try it as a burger spread. I bet it would really take a good veggie burger or chicken burger up a notch or two. And I bet it would be great with pretty much anything else you can think to dip in it.
Are you a fan of truffles? I swear, anytime I see them on a menu item, it’s pretty much a given I’m going to order that dish.
