This is a recipe for an easy garlic dip without mayonnaise. This garlic sauce is a versatile condiment and can be used for steak, roasted veggies, burgers or as a dipping sauce for artichokes!
The prep literally takes about a minute, maybe 2, if you are having hard time peeling garlic.
It can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a few days (I recommend consuming it within 3 days), if stored properly in an air-tight container or sealed jar.
What is garlic dip made of?
Usually, garlic dip is made with crushed fresh garlic and oil, butter or mayonnaise (aioli). However, my recipe for garlic dip contains sour cream, ketchup and seasoning.
If you are skeptical about using ketchup to make this dip, don’t be. Give it a go and let me know what you think!
How to make garlic dip?
In a small bowl (a soup bowl will be perfect), combine crushed garlic, sour cream, ketchup, salt and pepper.
Make sure you mixed everything well.
Tip: Use Garlic Press, instead of just mincing it with a knife. The difference is noticeable! If you are not sure which one I mean, this: garlic press is similar one to the one I have.
Or, if you have a Garlic Crusher, that’s perfect too!
