Delicious Dilly Dip

Like so many folks these days, my hubby and I are cutting back where we can to make ends meet. One of the first and most obvious ways to save a bit of money is by bringing a lunch to work, instead of eating out. But eating the same old thing day after day can be soooo boring. One thing I like to do to keep things interesting is to pack some crunchy veggies with a tangy dip. Here's one I've been making for a while that we really like.
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I use both light sour cream and light mayo)
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tsp dried dill weed **
  • 2 tsp dried onion flakes
Mix all the ingredients together and chill. Serve with your favorite raw vegetables, bread dippers or your favorite chips.

** Dried dill can be quite costly in the grocery store. I found it in bulk at a local health food store and it's much cheaper that way. I'm also working on an herb garden and hope to be growing my own soon.
