Water Chestnut Dip - TSLC

This is a great dip to serve anytime. I have been making this recipe since the eighties.  I submitted it to Southern Living and it is printed in their 1986 Annual Recipes Cookbook. My entire family loves this dip. It would be great for a Super Bowl Party.  Each January, I try to update some of my recipes and photos.  I am reposting this recipe and updating for those of you new to the site.

1 – 8 ounce can sliced, drained water chestnuts
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
1 tbsp. onion chopped
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 small garlic clove minced
1/4 tsp.ground ginger
Mix well, chill thoroughly before serving. Makes 3 cups. Enjoy!
Great with wheat thins.
