Dried Beef Dip – A perennial favorite, this cool, creamy appetizer should be in the starting lineup of your next party or family gathering!
Everyone in my family goes gaga over Dried Beef Dip. I can remember it being a part of many a family gathering since I was old enough to look past Goldfish crackers as a legitimate party food choice.
In fact, as a kid there were a few times that I was “cut off,” so to speak, from the Dried Beef Dip. Looking back, I think this happened because the grown-ups were conspiring to secure more dip for themselves. I know this because I’ve been guilty of doing the same thing to my kids.
This recipe is most likely to make an appearance at our family gatherings as the weather gets warmer. It has a creamy and cool base. The addition of fresh green onions and early summer dill showcases the salty and savory dried beef in a refreshing way.
This recipe can be served with crackers and it’s delicious. Served with pumpernickel bread, however, it’s awesomer than awesome so I recommend buying a fresh loaf from your local bakery.
If you serve this cool and fresh dip at your next party it’s sure to be a hit. Just be sure to get some before all your guests (and their kids) eat it all!
