We loved this dip! I put it in a circular "bread bowl" that I hollowed out. We used the pieces of bread, Barefoot Contessa's Parmesan Black Pepper Crackers -Ina Garten and various other store bought crackers to dip with. I let this chill for about 6 hours before we ate it, to really let the flavors meld together. We also loved the crunch of the water chestnuts. Thanks, Charlotte J!
This dip is very good, definitely a crowd pleaser. I like to use Knorr vegetable soup mix. Also, if I don't serve it in a sourdough bread bowl, I put it in a strainer for a few hours before serving.
