Warm spices really make this dip a sensation.  It’s been a repeated hit even with those who proclaim not to enjoy curry or horseradish!

Using a curry spice blend is a quick way to incorporate many warm spices into a recipe in one fell swoop. There are many curry formulations available so choose a favorite sweet version.  Depending on the selection, the color of the dip may be more or less yellow, orange or red.  Also, selecting a good quality white or light fruit-infused balsamic makes a difference.  It provides a bit of sweetness (believe it or not!) and acid for balance in the recipe, along with some nice health benefits.  Avoid using a tart, astringent vinegar.

 

Makes 2 cup dip

INGREDIENTS
1 cup mayonnaise (preferably no-added sugar variety)
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt (preferably no-added sugar variety)
3 teaspoons sweet curry spice blend
2 teaspoons good quality white or light fruit-infused balsamic vinegar (such as champagne, ginger-grape, lemon, apple or peach)
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon finely minced shallot
½ teaspoon finely minced garlic
½ teaspoon raw honey

Assorted fresh or roasted vegetables, chips or crackers for serving

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, place the mayo, sour cream, curry, vinegar, horseradish, shallot, garlic, and honey. Stir until well combined.
  2. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The flavors will blend and develop, and the dip will thicken slightly.
  3. Stir just prior to serving. Serve with assorted fresh vegetables, chips or crackers.

NOTE:

  • Dip can be prepared 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated until ready to use; unused dip can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 – 5 days.
  • Try a dollop on a burger or sandwich, or as a condiment for roasted chicken or pork.
