- 500 ml container plain yogurt of your choice
- 1 large cucumber
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
- 1 lemon
- excellent-quality olive oil
- salt & pepper
Sour Cream Dip:
The number of ways you can change this dip are endless. Add crumbled feta, or your favorite flavorings, maybe some salmon; substitute the sour cream for yogurt, throw in a finely chopped herb like dill or parsley–it’s versatility is as limitless as your imagination! Can be made at home or at the campsite.
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1-8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together, using a fork if at campsite (it is very important to make sure cream cheese is soft). Let sit for at least fifteen minutes, to let flavors marry.
Quick Tartar Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. hot dog relish (or other sweet pickle relish)
1 Tbsp. finely minced onion
Mix together and let sit for a half hour for the flavors to blend. A great solution for when you forget the store-bought stuff.
