Barefoot Contessa's Sun-Dried Tomato Dip (Light Version)

"Adapted from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, 1999. This wonderful dip is just as good as the original, using lower fat versions of cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. I bet you can't tell the difference!"

    I had all of the ingredients on hand so I thought I'd try it today. MMM. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    Fabulous crowd-pleaser dip! I served this with pita chips and everyone commented on how tasty it was. Made as posted, without the hot sauce. Definitely a keeper!

    Tasty! I made this for a party just as posted with all the lighter products and everyone loved it - ate it up in a hurry. Great sun dried tomato flavor and I like the green onions in this. I served it with wheat thin crackers. Serving at room temperature allows the full flavor to come out. Thanks for posting, Juenessa, I'll make this one again!

    This is wonderful, I used half cream cheese and half neufchatel, I also added in a couple teaspoons fresh garlic, I placed it in the fridge to chill overnight to blend the flavors, I hope to serve it tomorrow (if it lasts that long lol!) thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

    I love Barefoot Contessa recipes and this is no exception. Very creamy and the green onions gave it a little texture. I'm saving this recipe as it is a quick and delicious recipe!
