Are you a big fan of dipping? Heehee, now that I’ve said that, it sounds kind of wrong. Like, what exactly *could* dipping be? I mean dipping things into dips of course! I’m big on dips and I have been ever since I was little. I remember once, back when my brother and I were too little to cook anything, he made me a snack of toast and ranch dressing. I thought it was the best thing ever because I got to dip! He cut up the toast into little rectangles and told me they were chicken nuggets. They were kind of on the dry side, but the ranch kept me going.
Ever since then, dipping sandwich-like things has been a thing. Nothing makes me happier than a crusty grilled cheese and something to dip it into.
It’s funny how dips, like anything else, goes through trendy phases. When I was super little I was big into ranch. But then, somehow, in my teens, I lost the ranch way. I’m pretty sure it’s because all my friends were into barbecue and sweet and sour for their nuggets. I’m a sucker for going along with the crowd – to be honest, I still am, it’s something I’m trying to work on, because if I love ranch, I should love it loud and proud.
I recently rediscovered my love for it while I was at a burger joint down in San Diego. The server asked if I wanted ketchup or ranch with my fries. My default answer was ketchup, of course, but she insisted that I try the house ranch. It was made with Greek yogurt and was supposed to be out of this world. Now I’m all about the ranch, on everything, but especially with these green grilled cheese dippers.
