Clam Dip with Bacon and Scallions
Why This Recipe Works
To update sour cream- and mayonnaise-based dip recipes, we used equal portions of mayonnaise and sour cream; the mayonnaise added body and richness, while the sour cream brought a bright freshness to the dip. Adding strong flavors like bacon, cilantro, feta cheese, or garlic to our dip recipe cut through the richness. Letting the dip sit for at least one hour or overnight allowed the flavors to develop.
