Creamy Crab Dip with Fresh Herbs and EVOO
This crab dip is your new favorite party snack. Not only is it easy to make, but it's DELICIOUS. Let's just say we served it recently, and it was gone in minutes.
What makes our crab dip so different? For starters, we use REAL crab, not imitation (we used Chicken of the Sea and it got the job done!). Next, we use fresh dill, green onion, and lemon zest, which add the most delicious flavor combination.
And, finally, we add a bit of of Texas Miller's Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Just a smidge of this robust oil makes a huge impact - and this dip wouldn't be the same without it.
Did we mention the best part? You can have this dip done in under 10 minutes! Seriously! It requires zero cooking time, just some mixing, dicing, and zesting.
