Ingredients In This Recipe
The printable recipe further down the page has the complete list of ingredients, including quantities and step-by-step instructions.
Corn relish - We used our homemade canned corn relish for this recipe, but you could use a good quality store-bought sweet corn relish.
Sour cream - we used full-fat sour cream rather than reduced fat, but if you low fat can be used.
Cream cheese - allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature before using. Having it at room temperature makes it easier to mix.
Spring onion - Green onions give a touch of freshness to the dip and should be finely chopped.
Lime juice is added to taste and helps balance out the flavors. If you can't get lime, fresh lemon juice will also work.
Sugar (optional) - is added to taste, and how much you use will depend on how sweet the relish is.
Salt and pepper - season the dip to taste with salt and pepper.
