On My Hearth: Wicked Garlic Dip

I cut up a bunch of veggies to snack on, think this unique dip will be a perfect accompaniment. I'll be using light mayonnaise to lower the calorie content.

I am housebound today, btw, did something to my lower back which has me sitting on the couch with the heating pad nearby. *sigh* Perhaps I shouldn't have walked home from the grocery store carrying such a heavy tote bag? Regardless of the cause, I'd rather be sailing today as originally planned! Note to self and others: take good care of your back, especially if you're over 40 because apparently it's not as resiliant as it used to be.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 medium potatoes -- peeled and diced

Boil the potatoes until very soft, and drain well. Transfer to a food processor fitted with the steel blade, or to a mixing bowl.

Without waiting for the potatoes to cool, add the remaining ingredients. Whip until very smooth, using either the food processor or an electric mixer.

Cover tightly and chill. Serve as an appetizer or by itself, garnished with raw vegetables, or as a spread. (great on sesame crackers or toasted pita wedges).
