This curry dip from Tastes of Monroe County is making my spider senses tingle.
First off, it was submitted by a Mr. and Mrs. Fernandez, but it’s called Mrs. Lloyd’s Curry Dip.
Who was this Mrs. Lloyd to the Fernandez family? Was she a babysitter, a neighbor, or a legendary pirate?
I mean, she could be a legendary pirate. One-Eyed Willy made it to Oregon and hid all of his treasure there in a cave. A pirate named Mrs. Lloyd could have settled in Indiana with her curry dip recipe which is actually a code leading to secret treasure.
I will have to interview Mr. and Mrs. Fernandez about one Mrs. Lloyd later. For now though…
What you’ll need.
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of curry powder
- 1-5 teaspoons of horseradish (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon of tarragon vinegar
Despite the mystery surrounding this recipe, making it is self-explanatory and simple. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. That’s it.
It is recommended to add the horseradish teaspoon by teaspoon to test what you can handle, but that’s about it.
No booby traps, no skeleton organs, no mobster families, no Baby Ruths, and most importantly, no secret code leading to treasure.
Yes, no secret mystery was found, but I did discover a new dip and that is an adventure in itself.
The cookbook suggests you use this as a dip with vegetables, but I think it would be amazing as a sandwich spread. It’s got a honey mustard vibe to it. A curry infused one, yes, but they are both tangy and delicious on a chicken sandwich.
I do think it’s an adventure to try this dish, despite the pirates.
Still wish there were pirates though.
