Reviews for Party Vegetable Spread
"I made this for Christmas Eve, substituting red pepper for the finely chopped onion. Served with rye crackers, sharp cheddar and veggies (broccoli, mushrooms, etc.), it quickly disappeared. Thank you, Taste of Home."
"This is so good on Wheat Thins or with carrot sticks! Perfect snack for Weight Watchers! I love this one!"
