Wind & Willow provided the winning snack for our Super Bowl spread this year. I had their Savory Herb & Pecan Dip Mix on hand, and it couldn’t have been easier to prepare. A few hours before the game, I stirred together the dip mix and the included package of chopped pecans with mayonnaise and sour cream. The harder part of the process was waiting for an hour or two for the flavors to blend! Patience paid off when the snacking began. With a mayonnaise and sour cream base, you know it is a super creamy dip. The herb blend is flavorful without being in-your-face strong. It isn’t hyper-salty as many packaged dips are. Green bell pepper, onion and garlic add tasty texture and the dip’s costars, pecans, are just crazy good.
The dip disappeared quickly and Allen commented several times that we could have it again anytime! There is a sweet and savory dip recipe on the box that calls for crushed pineapple and cream cheese, and that might be the way we have it next time. It really sounds good.
