  • Chill and serve: Cover and refrigerate the dip for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld. This will significantly improve the taste.

Customization Tips:

  • Spice It Up: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper for a touch of heat.
  • Make it a Dressing: Thin out the dip with a little milk or buttermilk to transform it into a salad dressing.

Storage: Store your chive and ranch dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
