My family and I enjoy eating this with tortilla chips, crackers and just about anything else we can find to dip into it—including our fingers!
We truly do live out in the country. Our area's so remote that we don't even have a telephone! My husband and I have four children, and I try lots of the recipes I find in Country Woman.
"This dip is a favorite at potlucks and picnics," says Melissa Cook of Chico, California. "Although it's terrific as an appetizer, we often turn the creamy mixture into a sandwich by spreading it on slices of crusty baguettes."
Cheese lovers are sure to enjoy dipping into this creamy quick-to-fix fondue that has just a hint of apple. You can also serve this appetizer with apple or pear wedges. —Kim Marie Van Rheenen, Mendota, Illinois
My sister-in-law shared this creamy dip with me, and my family loves it. I serve it whenever we get together. It's a great way to get everyone to eat their vegetables, too. —Judy Bartnik of Wausau, Wisconsin
Zippy jalapeno, tart lime juice and garden-fresh cucumbers take center stage in this chunky salsa from Sandy Lee of Choctaw, Oklahoma. "I always have more cucumbers than I can use, so I created this recipe," she says. "It complements just about anything."
Brenda Snyder from Hesston, Pennsylvania notes, "This is a nice way to serve mushrooms as an appetizer...and it also makes a great side dish for any type of meat. Sometimes I add these tangy mushrooms to salads for extra flavor, too."
Some garlic breads taste more like buttered toast. Not this one - the fresh garlic flavor really comes through. Parmesan cheese on top turns golden brown in the broiler. I enjoy the crunch of the crisp crust.

Between working full-time, going to school and raising three children, finding time-saving recipes that my family likes is one of my biggest challenges. These quick pizzas pack a huge amount of flavor. —Amy Grim, Chillicothe, Ohio
