Teia's Dip

Doreen Fish


When I worked in a design office there were a lot of goodies that made its way into our office kitchen and this was one of them.
Teia was a Russian lady that worked in our custom drapery work room and she brought this dip one day. I took one look at and said "WHAT on earth is that!!!!?"s it didn't look appetizing at all but it was so delicious!!
I begged for the recipe and she gave it to me but no measurements but I played with it till I got it to taste like Teia's!!
She was a fantastic cook!!!
