Buffalo Shrimp Salad

Buffalo Shrimp Salad

I overheard someone say today that this week is the wettest week EVER. Like, in the history of Minnesota's existence. Could that be true? It has been grey, rainy, cold, windy and dreary for a lot of days in a row. Being a Minnesotan can be ridiculous and emotionally tumultuous, and I do realize that I talk far too much about our unpredictable weather and the emotional effects of that.

Best Buffalo Wings and Blue Cheese Dressing

Have I mentioned how wonderful my husband is? Coincidentally, today is Valentine's Day, so it is the perfect time to proclaim that. He really is. There are so many things I love about Dan and there are so many things he does to ensure I remain a happy mother, wife and human being. I could insert my list here, but I'm afraid I would get a bit wordy.

Creamy Onion Dip Recipe

Mix together this creamy, flavorful sour cream based dip. Blue cheese and onion soup mix blended together makes a simple, yet delicious way to enjoy fresh vegetables! You can also dip a cracker or pretzel in. Guaranteed to be devoured!

My husband and I have a common love of dips. Slow Cooker Hot Corn Dip or Zingy Black Bean Dip, you name it we want to try it! It is one of the first things we discovered that we both enjoyed, along with skydiving, kissing and margaritas. Not all together. Well, dips and margaritas go together (we have even managed to make skydiving and kissing go together, ha!). When we were first dating, we made a lot of different dips and we would sit out on my patio and eat and talk until the sun went down. Aaaaahhhh, those were the days.

The appetizer/dip section of our personal recipe book is pretty extensive, but we are always looking for things to add to it. We recently discovered this simple, yet delicious little dip that tastes wonderful with chips, crackers and veggies alike.

How long does onion dip last?

The great thing about onion dip is that it is great the first day but also tastes even (almost) better the second day. You can seal this in a air-tightcontainer for about 2 weeks in the fridge.

Do I have to use sour cream for my dip?

There are many different recipes that use other bases for this dip. This is just one and it’s really tasty. A plain yogurt would also work.

It is a perfect party staple and it is guaranteed to get devoured. Baby carrots will undoubtedly be found scraping the sides of the bowl, searching for every last morsel of dip yumminess.
