Delicious Dip {really, that is what it is called}

 
Do you have a go to snack or dip in your family that shows up at every family birthday, holiday or impromptu gathering?
 
This is THE dip in my family.  Delicious dip.  Creative name, right?  My mom, sister, cousins and I have probably made this dip more times than our husbands have plopped on the couch to watch a football game.
 
And that is saying a lot since football is big time in our family.  Even if we are heading home to visit for the weekend a bowl of this is in the fridge.  It's expected.  And if it isn't there?  We're mad.  Pissed off really.  Because sometimes we come home just for the dip, not the family.
 
Just kidding.


 
We snacked on this dip Sunday, when we celebrated the Little Man's 3rd birthday (his actual b-day is Thursday).  Don't worry, a recap of his day will be coming.
 
The husband told me in the kitchen while we were cleaning up that "the dip" leftovers needed to get sent home with someone, or else he'd spend his next two days off eating it.  I laughed.  And ignored him.
 
It's still in our fridge.
 
Delicious Dip
1 c. mayo
2 c. sour cream
1/2 bag shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1 t. Accent seasoning
1t. garlic salt
generous amounts of parsley
 
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.  Feel free to add more cheese and enough parsley until you see LOTS of green bits in this dip.  It is what makes it.  Let it chill overnight if possible or at least a few hours before serving.
 
Serve with relishes or potato chips.

 
On another note - I found out I am a finalist in Mr. Food's Ultimate Weeknight Meal Contest.  I entered my Bacon Buffalo Mac and Cheese.  They must have liked it.
 
Voting will start next week, so get your fingers ready, I will need your votes!  The winner receives an all-expense paid trip to the Mr. Food studios in Florida and gets to tape a cooking segment for a national audience.  I'm pretty sure you can imagine how much I want this.
 
Not just to cook with the Mr. Food staff...but for a vacation.  Details will be coming soon and I'm sure you'll be sick of me begging (ahem...asking) for your votes.

    Love the name of that dip! It does sound quite delicious indeed :-) I am a huge fan of dips/ sauces/ appetizer type food, so this is right up my alley!

  2. Who doesn't love a good DIP!??!! Especially with football season being here. As an RD I'd probably swap the sour cream for fat free Greek yogurt :) I bet it would taste just as good!!
