Need something quick, inexpensive, and delicious to serve at your Holiday Parties or Holiday Meals? Give this dip recipe a try. Not only is it very flavorful, it is very festive looking. The colors of the ingredients just pop.
I found this recipe on the "Our Best Bites" website. I modified the recipe slightly. I did not use all the onions they suggested. I used 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. I am not a big fan of lots of onions in dip. Just enough for flavor. I also upped the salt by 1/4 teaspoon. The recipe says to chill for at least two hours. I found the longer the salsa chilled the flavors blended together nicely.
Finally just spread some cream cheese on a plate, top with your chilled salsa and your dip is ready. Serve with crackers and Enjoy:)
