Garlic Dip/Dressing

Garlic Dip

So last week was all about the different spice mixes you can create in your own kitchen and store in your pantry instead of wasting all that money on them in the grocery store. And just like you can do it with spices, you can also do it with dips and dressings (and just about anything else, btw). This dressing was actually the result of a mistake I had made when trying to make ranch dressing. Ranch it is certainly not, but it’s just as delicious all the same. I just called it Garlic Dip, and everyone who tried it was happy. On a side note, I ended up crushing that ranch dressing a few days later, and I’ll be bringing that recipe to you this week as well!


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced $0.02
  • 1 teaspoon salt $0.01
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise $2.16
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped finely $0.25
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped finely $0.06
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce $0.06
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper $0.01
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar $0.01
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika $0.05
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper $0.05
  • Dash hot sauce $0.01
  • 1/4 cup milk $0.07

Total cost $2.76


1.) Place the minced garlic on a cutting board and sprinkle with the salt. Lay your knife on its side and move it back and forth against the garlic, almost crushing the garlic into the cutting board. Do this several times until a paste forms. Place the paste, including any leftover salt, into a medium-sized bowl.

2.) To the bowl add the mayonnaise, parsley, dill, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, vinegar, paprika, cayenne pepper and the hot sauce. Stir to combine all ingredients very well and then stir in the milk.

3.) Place in an airtight container in the fridge or, serve and enjoy!
