Dill Dip Mix Herb Blend for Cooking, Hand-blended salt-free dry HERB MIX
Among the first blends I ever created and still my most popular is this Dill Dip Mix. Salt-free and filled with natural dill flavor but not so overpowering you cannot use it for other dishes, such as fish and vegetables. Because I grow and dry the herbs used to make these mixes, my herbs the flavors are bright and the shelf-life is 18 months or more. At food tastings I make the Dip Dip with low fat ingredients because no one believes that it tastes so good with low fat sour cream until I show them!
Unlike most dill dip mixes this one features tarragon and chives in addition to herbs you expect giving it a unique sweetness. It can be blended with sour cream, cream cheese, or butter, or just sprinkled dry on vegetables or tuna, and used with lemon juice on fish. Contains: parsley, dill, onion, chives, tarragon, and chervil.
Each mix comes in a zip seal pouch for easy storage along with tips, instructions and easy-to-follow recipes for creating herb-flavored delights. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.
Among its many uses, including a great potato salad (recipe included with your order), you can make this salad dressing:

At the Backyard Patch I craft blends of home-grown herbs to use in cooking and entertaining. Although each was originally crafted to make a particular item, years of experimentation by customers and family has resulted in extra recipes and variations which are included with each mix.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch we guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because we hand-blend only the freshest herbs.
Although the weights vary each package contains three (3) tablespoons of the blend which in most cases is enough to make two recipes.
