Have you ever seen these out in the stores? Dill Pickle Potato Chips?? I have! About two weeks ago I was with my brother Greg at Messina Market ( a great eatery/market that carries tons of gluten-free items, including gluten-free bread and will even clean the deli slicer for you, if you ask). Well, I was really hungry so I got a tuna sandwich with gluten-free bread ( I was super psyched), some gluten-free gummies, a large iced cappuccino and a package of olives. My brother asked if I was pregnant. I was not. Just typical cravings.
Suddenly it was like love at first sight, I saw them. Sitting in the corner with the rest of the chips and I went right for them. Dill Pickle Potato Chips. OMG Heaven! I wanted them. My mouth was watering. They were Route 11's Dill Pickle Potato Chips which happen to be gluten-free (not the sour cream and onion ones), yay me! Score!!. Of course, Greg thought there was something wrong with me, with all of the random foods I had chosen. But OMG. Heaven.
Then I remembered this article I ripped out of Oprah Magazine on these amazing dipping sauces that went hand in hand with this fabulous chip. I must tell you! This is a great app to serve at a gathering, or for your kids, or your husbands while watching a game.
Three Cheese Pepperoncini Dip
In a food processor, blend 3/4 cup sour cream and 2 tbsp. cream cheese until smooth. Add 1 cup cottage cheese, 1/4 cup drained pepperoncini, 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, 1 tsp. lemon zest, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt. Pulse several times to combine into a chunky dip.
Stir 1 tbsp. Creole or Cajun seasoning or use 1/4 tsp. each cayenne pepper, ground black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and kosher salt into 1 cup mayonnaise.
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
