  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • The zest and juice of ½ a lemon
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 4 oz Gorgonzola Cheese
  • ½ tsp Sriracha Sauce or any hot sauce, but this is what we like – hot sauce makes this dip slightly pink in color
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • Garnish with chopped chives


  • Whirl the shallot, garlic, lemon, sour cream, Mayo in the food processor for about 30 seconds. (I have actually made this by simply mixing by hand – and it was quite good that way – so, either way is promising!). Add the gorgonzola, sriracha, salt and pepper and give it another zing with the processor – not too much – it is better if the cheese is still somewhat intact.
  • Garnish with chives.
  • Pour into a bowl and serve with heavy crackers. Wimpy crackers will break and won’t have a bold enough flavor.


use the best cheese you can find.
