A fresh, simple and delicious homemade version of the classic Cheese and Chive Dip.
Another day, another dip, another reason I’ll literally never own a six pack 😂 So worth it though. Follow me.
Cheese and Chive Dip
I’m not sure if this is just a UK dip, but this dip is legendary. Sometimes called Sour Cream, Cheese and Chive dip and usually found in those multipacks you can buy. Yep, you’re with me.
Well, this is it. Tastes just like it. But better (of course!).
It’s quite similar to the Sour Cream and Chive I uploaded a while back, just with a few tweaks. And the obvious inclusion of cheese.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Cheese and Chive Dip Ingredients
- Sour Cream
- Lemon Juice
Can I make this ahead?
Yup! In fact I actually recommend you do. It’ll give the flavours time to marry together and develop.
Can I sub dried Chives?
I always use fresh and highly recommend doing so. If you are going to use dried chives then definitely allow the dip to rest so the chives soak in and release their flavour.
What type of Cheese to use?
A nice strong cheddar will do the trick to give it a real punch of flavour.
Can I sub yoghurt or use low-fat subs?
I personally only use full fat mayo for this and can’t predict the turn out if you don’t. I always look at dips as a treat 🙂
