Herb Dip (and a Happy Thanksgiving!)

I was wanting a yummy dip to have on hand this Thanksgiving weekend, one that would be good with veggies. I found this one from Ina Garten and it's delicious! This creamy, flavorful dip is full of fresh herbs and scallions in a smooth cream cheese, mayo and sour cream base. I wouldn't make this without the fresh herbs as I don't think the dried stuff will give it the flavor to be tasty. The fresh dill is fantastic. I love it! If you need a dip for the guys watching football this weekend, or just something besides turkey leftovers to snack on, this dip could be the answer!

HERB DIP - slightly adapted from Ina Garten
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature - I used low fat
1/2 sour cream - I used low fat
1/2 cup mayo
4 scallions, white and green parts, minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt - I used 1/2 teaspoon
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
Place the cream cheese, mayo and sour cream in a bowl and blend with electric mixer. Stir in the herbs and refrigerate for several hours so flavors come together. Serve at room temperature with veggies of choice. The herb flavors are amazing, as long as they are fresh. Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I so enjoy all my blogging friends and I'm so thankful that each of you come by to read my blog. And you even leave comments!
