Nancy and Ryan’s Top Secret Super Dip

Gay Lea Foods Dip and Chips This is Ryan’s top secret dip recipe. Well actually it’s his mother’s recipe and he’s been making it for bbqs and parties since  I met him. It’s easy to whip up and always a hit. Even the babies like it. We made this batch while the kids played with their friends in the back yard and then ate it over the fence with our wonderful neighbours. Making dip with #GayLeaFoods and www.CubitsOrganics.com Start by mixing some mayonnaise into the Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour cream. This stuff is rich and thick. Then add the dry ingredients one at a time, mixing well in-between each addition.  Finish off with a splash on lemon juice and gluten free tamari sauce. Serve it up with a selection of crunchy veggies and wavy chips and eat it over the fence with your neighbours. Or you could even invite them over. Dip recipe from www.cubitsorgaics.com
