Chinese Sweet and Sour Dip

Perfect Pairing: Easy Entertaining


Last weekend we had Baby Lam’s shower at our house.  It was absolute perfection!


Eight of my friends and family helped host and I was just overwhelmed by the time, effort and love that went into the shower. 


Our inspiration for the nursery has been Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”.  


I think this translates into maps, adventure and travel!  So we used the same theme for the shower for our “Little Traveler”.  Of course the food had a global theme and each dish had a corresponding country and flag.

Everything was delicious and looked fantastic on the serving table.

While my incredible hostesses did all of the work for the shower I did contribute my new favorite appetizer, Chinese Sweet and Sour Dip.  I have been making this for a few months and it is always a hit.


Disclaimer, I totally realize that there is nothing even remotely authentic about this.  It is just darn tasty.


The base is cream cheese (always a good start) and it is topped with a combo of peanuts, veggies, cilantro, crunchy water chestnuts and soy sauce.  Then the whole thing is drizzled with sweet and sour sauce and served with crackers.



I don’t know why but this stuff is truly addictive. 


If you are looking for an easy appetizer to serve before the big Thanksgiving meal, here you go!  I know it is on our menu!  It is easily doubled if you have a large crowd. We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year and can’t wait to celebrate with our family in our new home.

Happy Thanksgiving!
