While researching this dip and while making it, my craving for an actual dirty martini became overpowering. Somtimes there’s no cure for such a craving until you give in…
I know it looks like I had several of these suckers, but I swear I only had one. Happy New Year’s everybody! Thanks for reading and for supporting the Saucy Dipper.
