Garlic and Herb Dip

The amount of garlic and herb dips from Domino’s that I’ve thrown down my neck over the years is quite frankly concerning. So, naturally I thought it was time to curate my own version.

Just a note, garlic and herb dips tend to differ around the world, so this one is based on the UK version. Here’s what you’ll need:

Garlic and Herb Dip Ingredients

  • Mayo & Sour Cream – Full Fat, of course.
  • Garlic – Fresh and minced/finely grated.
  • Oregano & Parsley – Dried works great!
  • Vinegar – White Wine Vinegar works best, subs in the recipe card.

I also season the dip with a pinch of sugar and salt, both to taste.

Making Garlic and Herb Dip

My number one tip for making this dip is to lest it rest in the fridge before serving.

By resting in the fridge you allow the flavours to develop. I recommend at least an hour, but overnight is best.

How much garlic to use?

1 medium clove of garlic goes a LONG way in this dip, so I don’t recommend using any more. If after letting it rest you want it more garlicky you can then add another 1/2 clove, but like I said, 1 should be plenty.

Notes:

a) Vinegar - White wine vinegar is best here, so I don't recommend subbing brown/malt vinegar. You could sub either white rice vinegar (slightly sweeter) or just regular white vinegar. If you don't have any then sub lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, both of which will just add a very faint fruity taste. Nothing too noticeable though. 
b) Herbs - I don't recommend subbing any other herbs, only the combo or parsley and oregano really work in this dip. Dried work great, just important to rest the dip so they have time to infuse.
c) Garlic - 1 clove makes this dip 'garlicky' enough, especially because it's grated/minced. Again, important to let the dip rest so the garlic can infuse. 
d) Preference - If after the dip has rested you want it a little more tangy just add a dash more vinegar. If you find it already quite tangy (either from the vinegar or garlic) add a pinch more sugar. If you're garlic crazy and want more garlic flavour then consider adding another half clove. I don't recommend any more though, I promise 1 clove goes a long way in this dip!
e) Calories - based on adding 1/4 tsp sugar and salt and shared between 6.

    That mix of sour cream and mayo sound just PERFECT! And with those fresh herbs, I am pretty sure it would disappear within no time! I bet leftovers make a great addition to a creamy salad dressing!
