Simple & Delicious Dill Dip

Every family has their favorite dip for chips & veggies.  Ours has always been the cop-out variety (Hidden Valley Ranch mix with a pint of sour cream).  I was looking for something a little more unique when I brought veggies & dip to share with friends I work with last week.

Everyone loved this dip.  The subtle dill flavor left everyone asking "what's IN this?".  A touch of Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce gave it a little kick as well.  

And... (depending on what side of the "food additive fence" you sit on) MSG is an optional ingredient.  Personally, I don't have a problem with modest, occasional use - and unbeknownst to most of us - it's still hidden in a wide variety of foods (see this article for more information, and to decide where YOU stand on it)

Make this at least 3 hours before, and chill before serving.  Overnight is even better.  (And, yes - the photos are marginal - but the dip disappeared before I had a chance to do any better)

Simple & Delicious Dill Dip

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 to 1-1/2 tsp dill weed
1 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp seasoning salt (such as Lawry's)
1 tsp Accent seasoning (MSG - optional.  See note/link above)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 dash Tabasco sauce

Mix & chill.  Serve with crackers, veggies, etc...
