 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Dry mustard -- (Chinese)
    2       tb           Tabasco sauce
    3       oz           Cream cheese, room temp
    3       tb           Mayonnaise
   1. Place the mustard powder in a small bowl and stir
   in enough Tabasco sauce to obtain a thick paste.  Let
   stand for 3 minutes.
   2.  Combine the cream cheese and mayonnaise in a
   mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.  Whisk in as much
   mustard mixture as you dare! Refrigerate, covered,
   until serving time. Any leftover sauce will keep,
   refrigerated, for 1 week.
   This dip was toned down with the mayonnaise and cream
   cheese from the original from John D. MacDonald’s
   book, Dreadful Lemon Sky (with Travis McGee and Meyer,
   his brainy friend) called Meyer’s “Superior Cocktail
   Dip” a virulent mixture that has been known to make
   the unsuspecting “leap four feet straight up into the
   air after scooping up a tiny portion on a potato
   chip.” This dip is good not only for potato chips, but
   for all manner of fritters and crudites.
   Taken from the Miami Spice cookbook received in the
   May swap from Nikki Bennett.  Great book!!!
