Emerald Isle Dip

For Nancy Citro, providing her popular appetizer for get-togethers has become a necessity. She pens from Cape Coral, Florida, "Friends joke that they won't go to parties unless I bring my dip. And I've lost count of how many times I've written down the recipe for people! Nancy likes to serve her snack with extra bread for dipping.—Nancy Citro, Cape Coral, Florida
