norgeskog, the dip recipe:
-1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
-several anchovies (remove caper if they're rolled)
-8 green olives (from the jar)
-white pepper (just a little) or black pepper
combine cream cheese and a splash of milk in bowl and blend using fork.
mash enough anchovies with a fork or knife to make a scant tablespoon.
mince a little white onion very finely and add that and anchovy to bowl.
roll up olives in several thicknesses of paper towel and squeeeze brine from them. mince. add those, pepper to taste, a big squeeze of lemon juice, a splash of worcestershire, and a little sliced scallion for color. blend a little, then beat with mixer till well-blended. garnish with parsley or additional scallions.
the white onion may be omitted if you prefer all scallions. chill to let flavors blend. good with pretzels. :D
hmmmmmmm, reading over this, i'm seeing hot sauce being good in this. i'm gonna mix a little of mine with some tomorrow and see if it's any good. i'll let you know!
and masteraznchefjr, tht's sounds like it would be really good, especially with some hearty bread and unsalted butter and a glass of milk to cut the saltiness. thanks!
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
