    Just looking for some unique dip recipes instead of the standard soup packet ones.  They can be hot or cold served with chips or veggies.
    Favorite for me is my clam dip.... One pint sour cream, one 8 oz. container whipped cream cheese with chives, five cans Doxee/Snows Chopped clams (drained), tbsp hot curry powder, tsp garam masala, tbsp Old Bay, 2 tbsp coarse ground black pepper, splashes of Sriracha to taste,  one bunch chopped scallions (green tops, too), some chopped Italian parsley. Blend thoroughly. Prepare ahead of time and allow to chill for at least two hours before serving. Stir a couple of times prior. Really good with those "scoop" type chips because you get more that way.

    I first saw dip around 1950.  You couldn't buy it in the store in those days, but my mother made it.  She mixed softened cream cheese, mayo.  Worchestershire sauce, caraway seed and I suppose S&P.  It was pretty good.

    Dad always blended equal parts cream cheese and cottage cheese with as much horseradish you can take.  Great with salty potato chips.  Add a little milk if it is too thick.  Remember, horseradish is good for your liver.

    All but one of mine are more spreads than dips, and one of them is for fruit, but these might work. I'm including the fruit dip because it is way tasty. You could probably add some milk to thin them out. All of them are made with an electric hand mixer and should be chilled at least a couple of hours before serving (I usually do overnight). Not all of these are mine, but I've made them all and liked them.
     
    Horseradish-Dill Sauce/Dip
    1 cup fresh dill
    1 green onion, chopped
    1/2 cup olive oil mayonnaise
    1/2 cup light sour cream
    1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
    1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
     
    Creamy Dill Sauce/Dip
    1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
    1/4 cup plain yogurt
    2 scallions, thinly sliced
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
     
    Garlic-Herb Cheese Spread
    2 (8 ounce) 1/3 less fat packages cream cheese, softened
    3 tablespoons skim milk
    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 garlic clove, finely minced
     
    Bleu Cheese Dip
    1 package (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
    1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon salt
     
    Horseradish Cream
    1 cup sour cream
    2 tablespoons dry mustard
    2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
    1/2 teaspoon salt
     
    Buttermilk Peppercorn Dip
    3/4 cup mayonnaise
    6 tablespoons Romano cheese, grated
    3 tablespoons buttermilk
    1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    3/4 cup Greek yogurt
     
    Creamy Fruit Dip
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 cup sour cream
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla
     
    And this one. I'm linking the recipe because it's easier. Bacon and Horseradish Dip

    That's true of all the cruciferous vegetables....I like them all and just happen to have a huge pot of collards on the stove right now.
    Many commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables come from the Brassica genus, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, rutabaga, turnips, bok choy, and Chinese cabbage. Arugula, horse radish, radish, wasabi, and watercress are also cruciferous vegetables.

    Nice to know all those cruciferous vegetables are good for your liver.......we eat all of them.......therefore we can drink more wine! 
    As far as dips go, never ate them growing up and don't eat them now.  Don't like chips either.  Closest we get is MH's guacamole that he makes about twice a year.  It's worth the wait.

    Horseradish
    Detoxes your body
    Daily dose: 1/4 teaspoon
    Glucosinolates, compounds in the roots and leaves of the horseradish plant, can increase your liver's ability to detoxify carcinogens and may suppress the growth of existing tumors, says a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Horseradish is one of nature's best sources of glucosinolates — it has up to 10 times more than broccoli, the next-best source.

    I've got a couple things that are good, one's more an appetizer with a dipping sauce.  I'll post if you're interested: 
     
    crawfish dip - similar in texture to con queso, as it has some Velveeta, but some other things too - served warm with tortilla chips or Frito Scoops.
     
    mini Italian sausage meatballs with pepper jelly - ezzy pizy, you take Italian sausage out of the casing, make these cocktail-sized meatballs which you can cook ahead, then warm in a microwave when serving -  the dip is just a jar of tabasco pepper jelly heated in the microwave served along side the meatballs.

    JRP that was just a play on words I would love to know what dip your mother made.  I just remembered one that my Mom made.  It was cucumber made with chopped up cucumber skin and all with softened cream cheese, a little of heavy cream & a couple of shakes of worcestershire and whip up in a blender.  Oh almost forgot she chopped up a Vidalia onion as well.

    blue heaven - Thanks for playing along.
     
    My mother made a pink colored dip for potato chips using cream cheese as a base. She passed away long ago and I never found her dip recipe written down. I had watched my mother make the dip since I was a little boy, so I have some idea of the ingredients, but don't know proportions or if I have them all.
     
    Here is what I can recall.
     
    Beat together with a hand mixer (Mom always used brand name ingredients):
    1 Package room temperature Philadelphia Cream Cheese
    2 TBSP finely diced white onion
    2 TBSP Heinz ketchup
    1 TBSP French's yellow mustard
    1 TSBP Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
    Salt and Pepper to taste
     
    The proportions may not be quite right. I usually adjust them as I make the dip.

    My Mother has a friend that always brought liverwurst dip to the weekly card parties.


    For some reason...I really wish I knew what was in that!

    When I lived in San Diego there was a neighbor who was Portuguese and she would saute anchovies in olive oil to make a paste and we would dip broccoli and cauliflower florets into it. I haven't thought about that in years until this thread. I may have to try my hand at this.
