Martini Cheese Dip

After tasting a delicious cheese dip at a party, I experimented at home and came up with my own version. It’s fun to serve in a martini glass alongside colorful fresh vegetables. —Crystal Bruns, Iliff, Colorado

    My family has made this dip for over 50 years without vodka. We make it with cream cheese, olives and olive juice., and sometimes sour cream if needed for consistency. I mix it using a blender. It's a family favorite dip with Ruffles, pretzels, and Fritos.

    I would omit vodka and add more mayo oe sour cream....if children or alcoholics or teetotalers are likely to be involved

    I have a question for Basketcase416....Is your review rating for this recipe, Martini Cheese Dip, or for your own personal recipe, the stuffed celery? The two are not the same. You did not say you made the recipe for Martini Cheese Dip. I'm just wondering. I am giving the Martini Cheese Dip a rating of five. I did make it and will make it again. Your recipe does sound good too.

    We have made "stuffed celery" for over 50 years every Thanksgiving....I use cream cheese, chopped green olives, and olive juice to thin it . Mix together. Wash and dry celery stalks using the tender hearts works best and spread the cream cheese mixture into the celery as you would peanut butter (if you were making ants on a log) Cut into 3 in pieces. Stuff only as much as you will eat. I usually do about 20 pieces. Then have more washed and ready to make when they all disappear. If you make too many and try to save them for the next day the celery will be soggy. Enjoy!

    Sounds wonderful. What could the vodka be substituted with? "Kids" don't need the alcohol!
