Heather’s recipe tips

  • This recipe has a hint of spicy heat with cayenne pepper. If you don’t like spicy food, you can leave it out. If you like your food spicier, add a little extra cayenne. You can also substitute with a splash of tabasco sauce.
  • While you can serve this immediately, I recommend letting it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This really helps the flavors come together.
  • If you like fresh herbs, substitute the dried parsley with fresh, chopped parsley.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled for a crowd.

How to store sour cream dip

The dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will last for 4-5 days. Give it a good stir before serving.

This does not freeze well because the mayonnaise doesn’t keep it’s texture after it’s thawed.
