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.


  1. This sounds like a great fruit dip I will have to try as soon as the fruit in the markets is better here. I love that sunrise picture, absolutely gorgeous and I wish I was there right now. It is incredibly windy here today and chilly but most of the snow is gone. You have a wonderful weekend also!

  2. I have never tried a fruit dip, maybe I should give it a go. Diane

  3. it's nice to know that you did this and close to what you had..looks easy ..maybe i can also try this on my salad days! as regards to your question, i'm not too sure if i understand your correctly, pardon me if i've got you wrong, the bread can be easily toasted up, no problem at all..just like a normal breads. have a good day!

  4. If I spent the week-end doing nothing but looking at the lovely sunset photo, it would be time well spent. Thank you for such a refreshing recipe and a special photo.


  5. Sounds like a wonderful dip...light and not too sweet! Have a great weekend!

  6. Interesting! Marnier in the dip :P

  7. yummm...wat a delicious fruit dip..Awesome clicks Lyndsey..:)
    Tasty appetite

  8. I am very much like you...prefer fruit raw without dip or anything. But a citrus yoghurt...yes, I would love to try!

  9. Thanks Pam, we are on the west coast of Florida so it's a sunset, but according to a friend on the east coast they look alike. :D

    Diane, this one is easy and worth it...add it to your list :D

    Lena, thanks, I guess I didn't word it right.

    Kathleen, you're too kind! Thanks! I love your photos too!

    Debbi, thanks! It's good!

    Biren, that's what I liked about's not too sweet. I didn't pack the brown sugar.

    tigerfish, yes, funny how well it works in the dip.

    Jay, thank you!

    Angie, this one isn't that sweet, so it's good, I still like the citrus yogurt too, especially to top waffles.

  10. I love this too. I actually asked the lady what was in it and she said it was sour cream and powdered sugar, and something else I can't remember. I'll have to ask my husband if he remembers.

  11. Nice blend, Lyndz! I don't like it too sweet either. I might probably just go without the sugar. The sourness of the cream is just nice especially with fresh strawberries. Are you still attending classes? Hope not! Then you'll have more time here. :o) Have a great week ahead, sweetie.
    Blessings, Kristy

  12. I am a straight fruit eater, but this sounds lovely. Do you think orange juice would work instead of the alcohol?

  13. Pam, yes let me know if you can!

    Kristy, This isn't that sweet, I did the brown sugar lightly and it works so well with the sourness of the cream. No I am finished with my classes, yay!

    Kristen, I think it would work with oj, but I would add 1 T at a time.

  14. This was really good and really easy...I will make it many more times!
