Jason's Deli Style Fruit Dip

Now I am not one for fruit dip, it is always way too sweet for me. My mother always likes to derve fruit with a sweet fruit dip. In my opinion, fruit is sweet enough it doesn't need anything sweeter. My friend Kristy sent me some sour plumb powder which is fantastic on fruit! I love the tart-sweet that compliments the sweet fruit. The only other time I served a fruit dip was a whole milk lemon yogurt...that's it...just the lemon yogurt. It was from a health food store and everyone liked it.

Then a little while back my daughter and I were at the north end of town, and ate lunch at Jason"s Deli for the first time. It was wonderful. Very healthy and reasonable priced. The wrap we got came with a choice of sides, and fresh fruit with a wonderful dip was one of the choices (well they didn't call it a wonderful dip). I loved it and had to rush home and see if I could find out what else was in it (I knew it had brown sugar).

Jason's Deli-style-Fruit Dip

1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup light brown sugar
4 teaspoons Grand Marnier liqueur (I used Cointreau since I didn't have the Grand Marnier, I think you could use any orange liqueur)

Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl until sugar is dissolved.

Chill for an hour, then stir once before serving.

Makes 1 1/2 cups.

Mmmm...I could eat the dip alone. This came so close to how it tastes.

Have a wonderful weekend.
