Ina’s Sun-dried Tomato Dip
This stellar Sun-dried Tomato Dip is the perfect dip for your next crudite platter. Simple, flavorful and it always gets rave reviews!
It was the first Barefoot Contessa cookbook. It was referenced on the Food Network way, way before Ina Garten had her own show. This Easy Dip Recipe will make you the hostess with the mostess at any gathering! Be prepared to give out the recipe, it’s just that tasty!
Why You Must Make
- I first made this to take to a PTO Meeting. EVERYONE wanted the recipe.
- It was from Ina Garten, AKA The Barefoot Contessa, before she had a TV show and none of my friends had heard of her!
- It’s a versatile dip as it tastes amazing with veggies as well as chips
I continued to dazzle everyone with her winning recipes…and got puzzled looks when I mentioned the name of the cookbook. But slowly my friends caught on…and soon they all had their own collection of Ina’s cookbooks. I brought this sun-dried tomato dip with a crudite platter for our New Year’s soup party, and it was no surprise that I was again asked for the recipe.
- This sun-dried tomato dip is completely made in the food processor, it’s a cinch to whip up. Sun-dried tomatoes, Tabasco (or your favorite hot sauce), and some scallions supply sensational flavors while the combo of cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream provide the creamy base.
- Tabasco adds a gentle hit of heat, but if you like spicy, add more to your taste.
- Serve this easy dip recipe with chips, crackers, or, my favorite, a slew of colorful veggies.
- PRO-Tip: Add some of the key elements to garnish the dip. A few sliced green onions or finely diced sun-dried tomatoes will add a pop of color. I also like to add a couple of dippers, like sliced cucumbers or red bell pepper slices. You’ll look like a seasoned party-giver!
- Definitely add this easy, irresistible to your next party menu whether for game day or a dinner party. Be prepared to hand out the recipe. I guarantee you’ll be asked for it.

I have only used sun-dried tomatoes a few times and I see from this dip, it’s time to have them in my stash.
This is a great dip to get people eating more veggies. I think it would do the trick with my kids. 🙂

We ‘re gonna have to try this ASAP:) We’ll try some Greek yogurt instead of sour cream since it’s easily available and cheap here:) Once again, thank you for a wonderful post Liz!
