Is anyone sick of sugar yet? I can't even look at all of the junk on my countertop without getting a stomach ache! My mom brought a huge veggie tray to a Christmas party we went to the other night, and never did a carrot look so appetizing. The sun-dried tomato dip was deliciously mind blowing, and a very welcome break from all the sugar I've been eating. It was definitely the hit at the party. So, if you're looking for a lighter tasting holiday appetizer, look no further. This veggie dip will rock your world!
Sun-dried Tomato Dip
from the Barefoot Cotessa
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped (8 tomatoes)
8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
10 dashes Tabasco sauce (I left this out- use it if you want more of a kick)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 green onions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
Puree the tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce, and salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Add the green onions and pulse twice. Serve at room temperature with crackers, chips, or fresh vegetables.
