Didn't have green onion sour cream tarragon...but it tastes great subbing cream cheese for the sour cream; and though it's missing some critical flavors it's not lacking at all. Also lacking a blender or food processor at the moment I simply cut the shrimp into really small pieces. I'm not a Low-Fat person so I'm not sure how hard-core mayo and cream cheese alter the flavor. Definitely a "keeper!" Read More

This was REALLY good except it was a little too mayonaisse-y tasting the first day. The second day it was perfect somehow... Read More

This was a hit at at recent BBQ. I use what I have on hand so I did modify the recipe. Omitted mayo carrots and onion ( so many people are sensitive to fresh onion) used cream cheese sweet peppers onion powder. The fresh herbs are key to this recipe. The next morning I put some on an English muffins topped with Swiss cheese and sliced tomatoes and broiled it...yummy. Read More

This dip was a hit for both events. It pairs nicely with pretzel bread sliced in rounds & toasted. I chopped everything by hand wanting a specific size for shrimp. I left out the carrot & onion only because I didn't have it handy the first time - why change a good thing right? Read More

I made some minor changes: used 3/8 tsp each dried tarragon and rosemary instead of fresh omitted chili powder and used probably more like 3 Tablespoons carrot. The 6 year old didn't like it but the adults did. Read More
