Last year our suggestion of foods for a Valentine’s Day “pink party” was very well received. So we’ll build on that list of pink foods with another recipe this year.
Here’s a dip from the Cherry Marketing Institute, made pink with cherry juice or the stronger cherry juice concentrate. You can also use this cherry recipe to celebrate Washington’s Birthday.
After you make the dip, dilute the extra concentrate to make cherry juice for cocktails or mocktails, and freeze any leftovers into ice cubes and ice pops.
Serve this dip with crackers, toasts or vegetables. We also enjoyed it atop cottage cheese.
