A super-refreshing dip! They key limes and cilantro work so well together. I love to serve and eat this with a spicy hot chip, because the heat from the chip is instantly cooled by the limey-ness (is that even a word?!) of the dip. Very good with regular tortilla chips, and corn chips, too.

How to Make Refreshing Savory Lime Dip

Step-by-Step

  • 1Bring cream cheese to room temp. Mix cream cheese together with the mayo and sour cream until they are well incorporated (about 4-5 minutes).
  • 2Fold in the cilantro.
  • 3Fold in the scallions.
  • 4Add salt, cumin and ginger. Mix it in manually, or use an electric mixer.
  • 5Grate the zest of all the limes into the dip and mix. I used a microplane; it makes the zest come out super thin and it is so nice that way so you don't get all that zest stuck in your teeth!
  • 6Next, juice THREE of the limes into the dip. Mix the dip after each lime juicing.
  • 7Taste it! add salt if you want.
  • 8Let chill AT LEAST 3 hours before serving. This is excellent after chilling overnight or for at least 24 hours. The lime flavor is stronger the longer this sits. Enjoy!
