Wow! I got raving reviews when I made this dip for my daughter's birthday party! It was great with Townhouse pretzel crackers!!!

Loved it. I made this for Thanksgiving this year for the first time. WHAT A HIT! Everyone loved it and it was gone in no time. A few of my family members asked for the recipe for their holiday parties. Something I will make again and again.

I was disappointed in the taste. It was so sour... I blame the Miracle Whip... should have known better... because I hate mayonaise! I was looking for something more like a cheese ball with salsa or shrimp sauce on top that I could use on crackers or tortilla chips... this was NOT it! Too soft like pudding! Blehck! I won't make this one again.
