This simple corn relish dip is always a favourite. Easy to make and easy to eat.
Some may scoff that this dip is not “on trend” – a bit 1970s retro. And yet, whenever it makes an appearance at a BBQ, corn relish dip always disappears quicker than you can say “sideburns are back baby”.
There’s just something slightly addictive about that sweet, tangy, creaminess.
And this dip is super simple to make. Two ingredients and two minutes later, you can be kicking back with nibbles and a nice bottle of Chardy.
While corn relish dip is always a hit as part of a nibbles platter, kids really like it too, and so it can be a great lunchbox addition along with some crackers and crudites.
If you want to lower the fat content, you can switch out the sour cream for either light sour cream or natural unsweetened yoghurt. Other recipes use cream cheese instead of sour cream. So if there is no sour cream in the fridge, there are other options.
And while this corn relish dip recipe only has two ingredients, you can fancy it up a little with a sprinkling of parsley if you happen to have some on hand or growing in the garden.
If you grow your own corn or you’ve picked up some fresh corn cheaply, you can make your own corn relish. Then you’ve always got a cheap source of relish in the pantry ready to make dip any time someone drops round for a sneaky afternoon catch up.
What else can you eat corn relish (or the dip) with?
It’s a popular condiment on hotdogs, especially if you use a nice European sausage like Kransky.
You can serve this on cold meats like silverside or put a dollop on some vegetable fritters.
