Author Notes: The name is from my childhood days when anything that wasn't immediately identifiable was called "goop", before I knew about a cleanser of the same name or before Gwyneth tried to take it as her own property.My local grocery carried a product that had the same ingredients, but then suddenly it went away. So...I was left to make my own version. This is really a cheesy dip!...three cheeses! It is great on crostini and is perfect with crudities.It is fabulous on a hamburger . I have even thrown it on pasta and used it as a "secret sauce" for sandwiches. The hot red pepper flakes give it a bite, so add or subtract the amount you use accordingly. (depending on the heat quotient tolerance of the tasters). Perfect to pass around with some fresh veggies at a cocktail party.dymnyno

Serves makes 3 cups

  • 1 cup asiago cheese, grated
  • 1 cup fontina cheese, grated
  • 1 cup parmesan, grated
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  1. Dump all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.
  2. Pulse the blender to incorporate all the ingredients.
  3. If the Goop is too thick, add a little more olive oil to thin.
  4. Serve with crudities or on crostini. You can also spread it on French bread slices and broil for a few minutes, until bubbly.

Thanks! It really does taste good and if you dip carrots and celery in it , it's healthy...right?

I love this one! Really versatile. I could see it over steamed broccoli too. And cauliflower. And lots of other things.

Looks delicious - three cheeses are perfect together...Do you mean 1 teaspoon or one tablespoon of red pepper flakes?

Barbara is a trusted source on General Cooking.

LOL! Don't feel bad, Liz--my husband won't eat the cheese! I, on the other hand, would devour it with a spoon.

I meant to say 1 tablespoon, but 1 teaspoon for wimps and none for Larry and Freddy!
