Simple Veggie Dip (or salad dressing)

I needed to make a dip and became increasing frustrated with all the recipes on different websites that simply say to use a seasoning mix pack. Seriously, what's the point of writing a recipe?!

So I threw this together yesterday with no recipe, and really liked the way it tasted after a day in the fridge. It came out very tangy without being overpowering. But it's still a 1st generation recipe, so I wanted to share it right away to see what kind of changes other people would make to it.

1 Cup Mayonnaise (I had the Kraft w/ Olive Oil variety)
1 Cup cultured sour cream
5 Cloves fresh garlic (pressed)
1/4 Cup grated parmesan
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tsp Oregano
1/2 Tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 Tsp sea salt

Mix it all together and chill overnight.

And it could probably easily be turned into a salad dressing by substituting milk or buttermilk for some of the mayo/sour cream.

Sounds really good. I will probably try it with Greek Yougurt instead of the mayo and sour cream.

Looks a bit like my Garlic Dressing of Doom

You might want to switch out the white vinegar for cider vinegar or a nice wine vinegar.
