Favorite Clam Dip

Dee McPhee


This is a variation of a recipe that our family has enjoyed for over 50 years. It has a bit of tang compared to most versions that are traditionally made. I make this for all family events and might as well not go if I don't have any to bring.

Perfect with chips while watching TV!
