This tasty Chilled Mozzarella Pretzel Dip is one of the more unique dips I’ve come across. While it is simple, it features the interesting flavor combination of celery salt, garlic and onion with a touch of sugar.
Celery salt and sugar??
This recipe was on my ‘to make’ list for a long time. What intrigued me about the recipe was that it kept things pretty simple- a creamy base, celery salt, parsley and a touch of sugar. Something about that combination caught my eye. Perhaps it is my love of the savory and sweet dynamic in food.
What kind of dippers to use
Pretzels are the perfect dipper for this dish, contrasting the dip with a nice crunch and bit of salt. If you preferred, cut vegetables like bell peppers and sliced cucumber could be used. Fritos scoops would also be a nice option as well.
Plan for a few hours of chilling
This dip is best served after it has chilled in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors develop
What is “Accent,” and do I have to use it?
Accent seasoning is an MSG spice seasoning. It has less sodium that regular salt. You can use salt as an alternative if you prefer, though I would use less than a 1:1 ratio, as directed below. You can always add more if you like.
