Who doesn’t like a good party? Who doesn’t like a good dip? How about we combine them! My friends and I like to do theme parties. It all started years ago when we would do International Night and the hosting couple would pick a country and we’d all bring food from that region. After all of these years we started running out of countries and expanded to just picking a theme. Some were silly like Star Trek and others amazing like Comfort Food. With summer almost hear and produce looking so good I thought that it was time for a Dip Party!
What is a Dip Party? It is where you celebrate all things that can be dipped! It can be anything from Fritos dipped into melted white chocolate, to chips and salsa to veggies in ranch. Sounds like fun, right?
Here are a few to get you started:
Blue Cheese Dip:
1 pint sour cream
3oz Roquefort or Blue Cheese, crumbled well
1 package Uncle Dan’s Southern Classic Dressing Mix
1 toothpick Black Pepper Oil
1 toothpick Dill oil or 1 teaspoon Dill
Mix ingredients. Dip toothpick in Black Pepper Oil and swipe through dip. Mix well and refrigerate.
This dip is great for veggies or Buffalo Wings.
For my carb lovin’ not gluten challenged friends I like to have bread on the table. Of course we have to dip it!
Balsamic Dipping Sauce for Bread
¼ Cup Virgin Olive oil
2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 toothpick Oregano essential oil
1 toothpick Basil essential oil
Gently mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Then dip the toothpick in the bottle of essential oil and swirl through the oil. (Use a different toothpick for each oil). Stir together and serve with a baguette or focaccia bread. The bread should have a nice crunchy crust and be soft in the middle. This doesn’t work well with really soft breads. I like to serve with torn pieces of the bread for a dip party.
No party would be complete without a sweet treat. Here is one of my favorites:
Wild Orange Fruit Dip
16 ounces of Cream Cheese (not reduced fat)
1 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
½ cup Honey (raw, unpasteurized)
2 drops Wild Orange essential oil.
Mix well and enjoy!
I love this one with strawberries, apples, pears and grapes.
Let me know if you like them!
