Another one of our favorite dips/ spreads in this household is the decadent BLT dip, without the lettuce though. It’s wonderful year ’round, unless you live where finding a fresh tomato in the dead of winter is impossible. Like us. While sun-dried tomatoes can be substituted, it doesn’t quite taste the same. Give this old tried and true stand-by dip a try while you can still find those wonderful summer tomatoes!
