Savoury Garden Dip (aka Garbage Dip)

Tis the season.
Garden Dip

For gatherings, for parties and lots and lots of good food.    I know my calendar is filling up rapidly with parties and get-togethers, and while I've got a few ideas of things to make and bring, I'm always up for new ideas.

Then as I was cleaning up my desk the other day, a piece of paper came to light, with a recipe on it.

Gee, what a surprise!

Actually, I was trying to get some stuff organized and found a couple of recipes I'd tucked away, and forgotten about.

This was one of them.  It had actually been brought to one of the first Tapas Nights we hosted, and was devoured.   Really, it was that good.    And when I asked the name was told that it had been named Garbage Dip.  

I'm sorry, but Garbage Dip just doesn't cut it here.

So I renamed it Savoury Garden Dip, but I'm open to other suggestions for the name.

And best of all, it's downright easy and really yummy.     You can also make it with low fat sour cream, not all that bad for you.

I serve it with potato chips, but you can also serve it with veggies or ...

And cause it's close to Christmas, I had to fancy it up a little.
 Or at least fancy the presentation up a little.

There is just on problem with this dip.  It's hard to stop 'sampling' it.
But I did leave enough to share.
