Found on the inside of a philadelphia cream cheese box and just had to try it. I was hesitant at first but was glad I did. This dip is wonderful and the zesty italian dressing gives it a wonderful kick.

This is a nice treat that definitely has zing to it. It's very easy to make. We scaled it down to 3 servings, and found it tasted better once heated in the microwave for 30 seconds. Overall, we liked this appetizer.
