Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip ingredients Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip chips Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip recipe I just spent a huge wad of cash on the internet buying epic cover everything spf 1000 sun screen and rash guards with built in sun protection. I am going to Hawaii for Thanksgiving! So excited to hang out with my family and soak up with sun (which means sitting in the shade). I am a really pale human. I realized this when one time I went to the Bahamas and got a sun burn so bad that I was peeling everywhere. It was so gross. I had a picture of myself on facebook from it, and it was by far the most commented picture of my facebook. Why? Because all my friends commented with remarks like “you’re so tan!” I have since deleted the photo because I was in a swimsuit and I don’t want to have facebook pictures of myself in a swimsuit. Needless to say in preparation for winter swimsuit situations, I have been trying to eat well. So when we made this Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip it was really hard to be good and not eat all of it. I had like 10 bites. Still good, because there was quite a bit left. This is one of those go to cheesy delicious easy dips. We paired it with sweet potato chips, which are very delicious, but I think it would be amazing with celery sticks or carrots. Yummy!

    This looks amazing – and so simple! I’ve been thinking about having a dip party sometime soon; a friend had one a few years back and it was a hit. This would definitely be a great addition.

    Hawaii! OMG, it’s like a dream :) you’ll have so much fun. We moved to Barcelona for a few months to get some sun and run away from winter in Berlin, but Hawaii is so much better :)

    Hi Jenny,
    Will you be amending the recipe ingredient list to include the tablespoon of chives? This would be helpful as it would be missed if you didn’t read all of the comments. Thanks!

    This was delicious! I puréed it too much in my blender so it ended up green but it tasted great :)
