Mamma's Dip Recipe--Oh Yeah, There Was a Party
I'd love to tell you how refined we all were--how we just sipped wine, looked fabulous and compared designer handbags. But if that had been the case, you definitely wouldn't have been at a DC Metro Moms party and you definitely wouldn't have had as much fun as we did. Of course, everyone there WAS fabulous--I'm especially talking to you girl--except me of course who opted for a nap and a ponytail instead of a "do" but that's what's so terrific about this group of women, I knew they'd show me some love just the same.
For those of you who weren't there, fear not. Just drink a lot of wine, go try to sneak up to your old boyfriend's house in a minivan filled with crazy moms and then scarf down some
crack dip (recipe below).
It will be just like you were there.
So here it is...and yes I'm calling it mine.
Mamma's Black Bean Feta Dip
2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cans white shoepeg corn
2 8oz. packages of feta cheese crumbled
2 bunches of green onions chopped
1/2 cup extra light olive oil (not extra virgin it will taste wrong)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
Garlic powder to taste
1. Pour first four ingredients into a big bowl and mix.
2. Mix last four ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
3. Pour dressing (step 2) over the top of mix (step 1).
4. Serve with Fritos Scoops (they're the strongest and provide the perfect dip/chip ratio)
This recipe makes quite a bit. You can easily halve it for a smaller group. I know there was plenty left over on Friday night (much to Mr. GoonSquad's delight). Also, it's best if you make it a bit ahead and refrigerate, but it's not necessary. People will beg you for the recipe either way. Feel free to pass it along.
