It isn’t easy being cheesy, unless you are this corn dip in which case not only is is easy to make, it’s also super tasty.
Originally I had planned on sharing a recipe for vanilla peach jam on Monday before peach season runs out on us, but clearly it’s no longer Monday and this is clearly not a post about jam, let alone peaches. On Sunday we hosted out “Not Invited” party and as per usual I shared sporadic photos of the food on my Instagram story. And then the requests for the recipe to the corn dip I showcased came pouring in (both from party guests and on Instagram), so I am giving the people what they want! As for it being Tuesday instead of Monday, well that’s no surprise by now is it?
This dip is as easy as it is delicious. Funny thing about the ingredients, two friends who particular enjoyed it were trying to figure it out. One thought it had cottage cheese and the other mayonnaise and both respectively disliked those ingredients which meant at least one of them was eating something they normally don’t like. Well, the latter was correct because the base is mostly Greek yogurt but a little bit of mayonnaise. I actually don’t normally like mayonnaise on it’s own, but give me an aioli, a creamy pasta/potato salad, or a dip like this and we are good to go.
