Lemony Fruit Dip
I can remember when my family all lived in close proximity up north, summer holiday BBQ’s never went without a big watermelon carved into a basket and then filled with fresh fruit. I used to love to go to my sister’s as I can remember she used to spike hers with a little vodka and that always made the fireworks seem even better on the Fourth of July! Of course, she never told my mom that the fruit was laced and I never tattled on her, knowing we’d both end up in the hoosegow! But that was many years ago and all of us live in different parts of the country and families just don’t seem to get together like they used to. But this recipe today would have been a perfect companion for that watermelon basket of so many years ago or if you have one of those Pop Chef gadgets out today to make a fruit centerpiece, this would also be a good dip for all those pretty pieces of that cut-out fruit. This recipe can also be made with orange zest and juice instead of the lemon, either way is great!
- ¼ cup confectioner's sugar
- 1 teas grated lemon rind
- 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup sour cream
- Gently whisk together the sugar with the lemon rind and juice.
- Fold in the sour cream.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Today is National Lemon Juice Day and National Whiskey Sour Day and the latter sounds pretty good right now! Another refreshing tidbit for the Labor Day cookout………..enjoy!
