Greens Dip

For our annual New Year's Day party, I always have some sort of carrot, greens, and black eyed pea dishes that are traditionally symbolic of health, wealth, and good luck respectively.

This was a recipe that I found written on the back of an envelope in my Maw-maw's recipe basket that I updated slightly.

It's a riff on the traditional spinach dip and can be made the day before.

Happy New Year!

Greens Dip

8 oz. Sour Cream
1 c. Mayonnaise
1/2 c. Scallions, chopped
1 Tbs. Dill
3/4 tsp. Salt
10 oz.  Greens*, wilted, wrung out, and chopped

Throw all ingredients into a bowl.
Blend together with an electric mixer.
Chill for a couple of hours at least before serving with raw veggies, crackers, chips, or pumpernickel bread.
Any leftover dip makes a great sandwich spread.

*You can use a mixture of greens including mustard, turnip, and collard.  You can use fresh or frozen just make sure they are cooked down.
