A recycled cup holder from McDonald's. I saw this idea in my "Southern Living, Quick Fixes With Mixes" cookbook.
Four of my glass candle holders from the attic.
The glass pieces fit perfectly in each of the cardboard sections. Small water glasses would work too.
For the dip I used a delicious recipe, from the same cookbook;
Stir together 3/4 cup sour cream and 3/4 cup mayonnaise with 1 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley, 1 Tbsp. fresh chives, 1 tsp. fresh dill(I used 1/4 tsp. dried), 1 tsp. lemon zest, and 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice for a quick dip. Serve with assorted vegtables, pretzels, bread sticks, pickles, or whatever your heart desires.
I had a square glass salt shaker from Walmart that fit perfectly in the center of this cup holder.
I added the daffodil from my granddaughter. I think it added a pretty touch to this recycled container.
For experimenting reasons, I also tried adding a simple pink faux flower in the center, supplying a touch of color, if I didn't have access to real flowers.
If you need to take relishes to an outdoor event, this might be an easy way to do it. In fact, if you wanted to and had extra recycled holders on hand, you could serve a larger variety of condiments.
If the event was real casual, you could use clear plastic glasses, although I am not sure they would be sturdy enough.
Just another little something for you...
and my young kitchen partner:)
Thank you for stopping this evening.
