Green Onion Spread #SecretRecipeClub

Welcome to Secret Recipe Club special themed reveal! 

Secret Recipe Club hosts an optional themed reveal on months with an extra Monday. The theme for this event is Leprechauns & Bunnies.  St. Patrick's Day and Easter are right around the corner and what a perfect theme to load up on an arsenal of holiday friendly dishes like carrot cake, corned beef and other green dishes! 

I was assigned Sid's Sea Palm Cooking. I loved the variety of recipe to choose from! I have a friend who recently moved to Copenhagen and it was fun to look at all of the different Danish offerings on the blog.  I had a hard time choosing between a few different recipes. At the top of my list was Bread Pudding with Irish Soda Bread, Deviled Egg Chicks, and Ham and Green Onion Roll-Ups. However, the recipe that won me over was the Green Onion Spread. My husband loves green onions and I loved the idea of a spicy cream dip. The original recipe called for everything to be minced, but I opted use my food processor to speed up the process a bit and was hoping the processed green onions would produce a lovely green color for my dip. I opted to serve my dip with corn chips, but crackers or veggies would also be delicious. 

My husband and I loved this dip and gobbled it up! The dip was a nice light green and a great fit for the Leprechaun part of the theme- especially with the additional sliced onions on top. 

I love these themed reveals and I believe that the next one will happen in May- can't wait to see what fun the next theme will bring to our group! 

Check out the round-up below to see more Leprechaun & Bunnies inspired recipes! 


8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbl mayonnaise
1 bunch green onions, roughly chopped (set aside 1 Tbl of sliced for garnish)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 jalapeno
1/4 cup shredded Pepper Jack Cheese


Place cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, onions (making sure to set aside 1 Tbl sliced for garnish), garlic and jalapeno into a fod precessor (if you don't have one just mince your veggies).  Plus till it is well mixed. Stir in the cheese. Plate (or chill till time to serve) and garnish with sliced green onions. 

Serve with chips and veggies. 


  1. I really enjoy these theme reveal days as well. I love a good dip and this one sounds great. Awesome SRC post!

  2. It is good, isn't it? Love the combo and I think I need to make some soon. I do have all the ingredients in the fridge at the moment. Great choice.

  3. Love this! Chip dips are a weakness of mine, and this one looks fantastic!

  4. I do love a good naturally green option for St. Patrick's Day!

  5. I have a thing for dips. Whenever they are around they end up being my whole meal. This one would be no exception. Happy Reveal Day!

  6. Yum! This dip sounds amazing. Great pick!

  7. This would be a very dangerous dip for me to have in the house. I would hide myself in my bedroom so I wouldn't have to share any of it.

  8. And this looks delicious. Give me a bag of Lays.

  9. I see a pale tint of green. Great idea! And, yumm!

  10. Yum! I love onion dip and this one looks so much better than the packet one. I love the addition of pepper jack! I'd love for you to stop by and link up at our new link party, You Link It, We Make It - where we actually make the features! Thanks for sharing!
