I depend on this mildly seasoned crab dip when hosting parties. It's a terrific time-saver when accompanied by celery sticks or your favorite raw veggie. It's so simple to prepare that it gives me time to get other appetizers ready or mingle with guests.

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons picante sauce

"Horseradishes seem to come in different strengths; you can never take it back out, so start off easy."

"I like horseradish, so this dip intrigued me, but I still found it a bit overwhelming. I tried to adjust it with some sour cream, which helped some, but it went pretty much untouched at a party."
