Vegetable Wreath with Dip Recipe

Publisher Photo
Vegetables and dip are a mainstay at most holiday parties. I like to dress up this appetizer by cutting vegetables into festive shapes and arranging them as a wreath. It's a nice conversation piece. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

Beautiful and the dip is delicious! I added sugar snap peas to the veggie mix.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2009

This was delicious, and better yet, quick and easy. The only problem is, the ingredients don't list onions, yet the directions say to add them with the olives. So I tried it with 1/4 cup finely diced red onion, and it was delicious.
