Green Herb Dip by Mel's Kitchen Cafe

This recipe would be great when hosting a party to use with vegetables or crackers!

Green Herb Dip

What you need:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened, light or regular
½ cup sour cream, light or regular
½ cup mayonnaise, light or regular
4-5 green onions (scallions), white and green parts chopped
¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

How to:
Place all ingredients in the food processor. Pulse 10 to 12 times, until just blended. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve with fresh vegetables like celery, carrots, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and whatever else your heart desires!

Second up, a simple marinade that packs more flavor than perhaps any marinade I’ve used to date. And trust me, I love me a good marinade. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of garlic. It adds fantastic flavor and doesn’t overwhelm the pork, I promise. Now, on the issue of whether you want to go around breathing in other people’s faces after eating your meal – well, I’ll leave that up to you. Not only is this recipe quick to throw together, the grilling portion of the recipe eliminates the need to heat up your house by turning on the stove/oven. And what’s better on a hot summer night than to grill up dinner and enjoy it in the evening cool-down. Enjoy!
