The Easiest Creamy Garlic Dip Recipe for Those Gameday Snacks (and Our Baked Crispy Broccoli Cheese Balls )

One of our fan favorite appetizer recipes is the crispy baked broccoli cheese balls. With everyone planning their gameday menu for the big game, we thought we needed a creamy dip to go with those famous cheesy appetizers. This creamy garlic dip is the answer for not only those hall of fame appetizers, but also anything else that needs a dunk in a dip or sauce

This creamy dip is made with mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic (measure it with your heart), fresh mint or parsley, lemon juice and a touch of olive oil. The ingredients are mixed together and is ready to serve in five minutes. You can use fresh mint or parsley in this cold dip recipe. Make that choice by your personal taste preference or by what you will be serving the dip with.

For the best flavor, be sure to use fresh garlic in this dip recipe. You could use garlic powder, but it would not taste as light and fresh. The garlic dip can be served right away, but if you have time to let the flavors blend together, do it.

Is your Super Bowl™ gameday menu planned with plenty of snacks and appetizers? If not, check out our crispy shishito peppers, crispy chicken artichoke balls, air fryer onion rings and air fryer mushrooms. All of these recipes would go great with this garlic dip.
