    This is a great all- around dip. I've made it year-round and for all sorts of occasions. I always get compliments. Thanks for sharing!

    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.
