Wimpy add-ins need not apply. A rich, creamy dip requires assertive playmates for balance.
Why This Recipe Works
Sour cream might be the standard Creamy Dip base, but our tasters found that a combination of mayonnaise and Greek yogurt yielded the best flavor and texture. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice offset the richness of the mayonnaise and yogurt and added a citrus zing.
Merely stirring the ingredients together was not enough to fully integrate them into the dip. We found it best to process all ingredients in the food processor with the exception of the yogurt, which we stirred in at the end.
