Herb Seasoning Gift Set | Five Herb Blend Mixes for Making Dip | Backyard Patch Dip Mixes | Dill Dip, Cream Cheese Spread, Garlic & Herb
You are looking at a combination of my FIVE most popular Herb Mixes for making Dips. I grouped these together for a quick hostess gift, party favor, house warming or just what you need to make an entertaining splash at your next party. The set comes in a decorative sleeve with a matching set of recipes.
At the Backyard Patch I craft blends of home-grown herbs to create dips, sauces, dressings and spreads for use in cooking and entertaining. This group of five includes a great mix of our specialty blends to give you a perfect introduction to the large number of Herb Blends we make.
This set of FIVE contains:
Marcy's (that's me!) Dill Dip - and you can make it no/low fat and no one will know!
Ranch Dressing / Dip - much less salt than any other on the market!
Tarragon Yogurt Dip - a sweeter blend just for yogurt
Herb Cheese Dip - use ricotta and cottage cheese for a zest and unique flavor
Fiesta Dip - a spicy taco dip
Each mix comes in a zip seal pouch for easy storage along with tips, instructions and easy-to-follow recipes for creating herb-flavored delights. Although each was originally crafted to make a particular item, years of experimentation by customers and family has resulted in extra recipes and variations which are included with each mix. I even include a recipe book with even more ideas for using these time-saving mixes.
Try them and enjoy!
Here is a detailed description of the mixes in this combination:
Marcy's Dill Dip - This mix was my first creation and is the only one to be graced with my name. It makes a superb party dip, just mix with mayonnaise and sour cream (I use the no-fat sour cream and light mayo and my guests can't even tell). Even tastes great with yogurt. Good on carrots or other vegetables and crackers. A staple of all my holiday entertaining!
Ranch Dressing/Dip - This mild and tasty blend of herbs creates both a traditional Ranch salad dressing when using buttermilk or a dip for vegetables and chips with sour cream and mayonnaise.
Herb Cheese Dip - This easy-to-use blend uses Ricotta and Cottage Cheese rather than our usual cream cheese recommendations to make something you can serve as a spread or a dip. You can make it ahead and freeze it too! The flavors go well with both sweet and dry wines, so you can use it at your next wine party! The combination includes garlic, basil, parsley, chives, marjoram and black pepper.
Tarragon Yogurt Dip - This sugar sweetened vegetable dip can also be a salad dressing even without thinning. Making it with yogurt keeps down on the fat. I have used this as a sauce on fish and as a baste on broiled fish. The sugar caramelizes and punctuates any otherwise dull fish. Contains tarragon, sugar, salt, garlic and other herbs.
Fiesta Dip Mix – A blend for making a taco dip that is flavorful and uniquely spicy, but not hot. This mix creates a zesty Southwestern Dip, just mix with sour cream and mayo. Good on tortilla chips and perfect to use creating layered taco salad.
