“This addictive dip goes fast and is a great one to make quickly and serve fast. The plate gets cleaned. Lower in fat with the neufchatel and if you sub in 2% cheese. This is from a Kraft cookbooklet for Superbowl 2010. It was so colorful and the flavors fresh. Hope you all enjoy it as much as our guests did. Great for those who don't want alcohol: see the note for the substitution. A great stand alone as presentation is so pretty. I will post a picture soon. Enjoy ChefDLH”
