How to make this sour cream and chive dip lighter
I used 1:1 sour cream to mayonnaise ratio. Now you can use 2:1 so say for ½ cup sour cream you only use ¼ cup of mayonnaise. Plus you can use light mayo.
- Sour cream can be substituted with Greek yogurt or crème fraiche.
- Garlic – if you don’t like it, omit it.
- Chives should not be omitted or substituted with dried chives. It will not taste the same!
