This Garlic and Cheese Crudite Dip is a quick favorite of ours and made with mayonnaise, grated Pecorino Romano cheese and Dijon mustard. It also tastes great on top of your favorite salad.
What is a crudite?
Crudités are traditional French appetizers. Basically it’s raw vegetables served with a dipping sauce. This dip recipe came about many years ago when I was on a Caesar Salad kick.
I love the salad with grilled chicken on it but I didn’t particularly care for the dressing. Mainly because Caesar Salad Dressing contains anchovies and I could always taste the fish when I was eating my salad.
So I tried to recreate something similar to use on my own salads at home. This dressing makes a great Caesar Salad Dressing substitute as well as a great dip for raw vegetables. You can use whatever vegetables you and your family like.
I opted for the basics but mushrooms, broccoli, and radishes make great alternatives. Just go for the color and have fun!
