BLT Dip For Your Backyard BBQ


  • • 1 Cup each of sour cream
  • • 1 Cup of mayonnaise
  • • Two cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • • 8 pieces cooked bacon, chopped
  • • 8 oz roasted cherry tomatoes
  • • Juice of half of a lemon
  • • Salt and pepper to taste
  • • A handful of arugula

Summer is right around the corner and with the temperatures heating up, the kitchen is cooling down. It’s the season full of pasta salads, no-bake desserts, beach sandwiches, and more. One of my favorite summer staples is a classic BLT – crispy, crunchy bacon, juicy, local tomatoes, and fresh, peppery arugula (my choice of 'L' instead of the typical lettuce).

There is something delicious about the sandwich’s simplicity; only three ingredients between two slices of bread, or a biscuit. This recipe is my spin on a different presentation to the classic dish – everything combined into a summer dip that is as easy to make as the original!

Serve this alongside our Biscuit Crackers for a cool and creaming appetizer this summer! The perfect dish to start off any backyard barbecue – like Memorial Day, your Father’s Day celebrations, or the Fourth of July!
