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 love Ina! It’s easy to see why this dip is a go-to recipe for you!
Pizza dip is always popular. So simple but very good.
I am actually planning when I would have a chance to try this dip 🙂 It’s so easy and sounds very delicious.
Lovely dip my friend, sundried tomatoes are perfect 😀
If there are going to be men there, like a BBQ I always try and make Spicy & Sweet Turkey Meatballs and serve them from my slow cooker with tons of tooth picks !!
I’m clapping my hands because as you know, I now have a food processor. And I love sun-dried tomatoes. Your dip looks very pretty with the assortment of crudites xx
i make pizza dip & bread sticks
I make great chicken wings.
Love sun dried tomatoes! A delicious dip, Lizzy xo
I do a triscuit, topped with a sliced tomato, sliced mozzarella, a basil leaf, and drizzled with balsamic! Yum!

I love sun-dried tomatoes and this dip sounds awesome with all the other flavors! Even better that it’s so easy to whip up, thanks for sharing Liz and can’t wait to give this a try 🙂
What a great dip! Love the combo of flavor. Perfect for the big game! Thanks.
Liz, this sounds so delicious – it reminds me of another dip that we enjoy, made with goat cheese, but I imagine this is just as good!
My current favorite dip is actually a block of feta cheese topped with blueberry jam. Put the cheese block in a small baking dish and top with the jam. In a preheated 350 degree oven, bake for 20-25 minutes til the jam is bubbly and serve with tortilla scoops. Delish and sooooo simple!
Sounds wonderful, Kiki!
I know I’d love to nosh on this while watching Denver (hopefully) beat Seattle:@)
What a glorious dip. I can see why you love it so much. I think I have one of Ina’s cookbooks. I spend so much time in magazines, I don’t think of my cookbooks often enough!
I love to do tomato bruschetta on little garlic toast rounds. This dip looks friggin’ for real though.
To tell you the truth , I haven’t made any kind of dip yet . Shameful , right ? 😀 Ina’s recipe sounds wonderful and the cream cheese in there has my name on it lol
I remember when Ina had her store in the Hamptons. I still think her first book was one of her most delicious. I’m not a huge fan of TV food “stars” but Ina was a star in my book way back when. I have her book too and it is terrific!
Thank you so much for reminding me and for sharing this recipe.
Ina is my idol! I definitely have to try this dip! Thanks, Liz 🙂 ela
