He doesn’t usually like watching television, but he was hooked by one of those documentary channels nowadays. He is watching a fishing channel, and already started to make plans when to go fishing with his friends. They can do it only a few weekends in a year, but talk about the same fish and camping adventure all year round.Yes, I’m talking about my husband. Instead of going for a walk on a sunny spring weekend, he wanted to be a couch potato this Sunday. He bought a big pack of Bud and a party size tortilla chips and asked me if I could prepare something to dip the chips. He was so sweet with his pleading eyes, and I wanted to make a surprise and prepared this Italian dip sauce trio.
Actually this is not an Italian sauce recipe. In fact, maybe one of the three sauces in this post may be an Italian sauce. The red one. Tomatoes, onion, garlic and chili. Yes it sounds Italian. The white one is quite Greek with yogurt, and the green one is extremely Californian with its creamy texture and impressive avocado flavor.Having a dip sauce for chips is good, but having three different sauces is excellent. The red one is hot, the green one is creamy and great, and the white one is cooling. When they are together, they have the colors of Italian flag, that’s why I called this recipe Italian dip sauce. I am used to prepare dip sauce for chicken, but this was the first time I made it for chips.
They are all easy to make and they were really great with the chips. My husband liked them a lot. I and the little guy also liked them, so I our hiking plan was totally cancelled. I grabbed a beer, our son drank orange juice and we spent the whole sunny Sunday dipping Doritos and watching “Big Catch” on TV.
