The Super Bowl is all about the epic battle between two opposing teams, running it out for football’s top honour. It’s no surprise that this battle extends into the kitchen, where Blue Cheese and Ranch duke it out, year after year, for the top spot in our hearts (and bellies) as the dipping sauce of choice. Here in the YVF Kitchen, we think both are pretty tasty, so we offer you recipes for our favourite version of each dip…we’ll let you pick the winner!
Blue cheese dip
This is the way Krysten, our Director of Marketing, likes to make her blue cheese dip. Her version is sort of a love-child between Tzatziki and traditional blue cheese. With only a few ingredients, it’s quick to pull together.
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of blue cheese, finely chopped or crumbled
1 small clove of garlic, minced
1/2 of a lemon, juiced
1 tbsp of chopped parsley (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl. Stir until well blended. Serve with a sprinkle of blue cheese overtop. This dip can be made a couple of days ahead.
Rebecca’s ranch dip
Rebecca, our Marketing and Customer Service Manager, is the resident football fan in the YVF office, so she is full of saucy suggestions when it comes to winging it. This is the ranch dressing she likes to make.
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp chives , finely chopped
1 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. For a lighter option, you can opt for light sour cream or mayonnaise.
