Fabulous Dips - A Great Invention!

The best invention for the vegetable is the.... DIP!

Dips have become the favorite past time garnish for veggies, crackers, fruits, and meats.
Dips come in all different textures and tastes to compliment whatever they are partnered with.

Cheese, creamy, milk, veggie, chocolate, are but a few dips that are available.
The two dips listed below are great for veggies, crackers and also wonderful as sandwich spreads. Try one.. try them both and see if you won't become a "Dip Fan" yourself!

Oh, by the way, they are very low calorie and taste fabulous!

      Hi Vocalcoach! I was actually craving the olive dip myself the other day. :) Thank you so much for the "hubtacular" comment.. that is a way-cool word (Leave it to CloudExplorer to come up with that one) Thanks for all the shares and votes up.. You're da Bomb! ♥

      RL ~ I had to come back and review these great recipes for dips. I'm getting hungry for some celery and cucumbers and need a great dip.

      Your hubs are in a class all their own. The presentation on this one is so "hubtacular" ( word stolen from hubber, CloudExplorer.) :)

      Voted completely across (not funny) and shared with twitter, FB, HP and more. Thanks so much!

      Thank you twoseven! They are really yummy dips! I know you will love them. Good question on the "storing them." I have actually used both. Most of the time I will use tupperware because it's much easier to use than mason jars. Either way, I promise you that your dips won't last long enough to worry about how you store it! I've been known to finish it in one sitting (providing I have enough veggies and pita chips available)! lol

      Great hub! These look fun and easy enough that I can do them while my 2.5 year old entertains himself, or even have him help me! I have been thinking more about how I want to make my own dips because often the store bought ones have too much junk (msg, etc) in them! I was just wondering - what do you think is the best way to store these dips? (assuming I don't eat all of it right away!) Just a regular tupperware? Or would a mason jar be better? Thanks!

      I'm so glad I taught you how to cook :-) (Oh what I wouldn't give to see the look on your pretty face right now.) And yes, your little brother Randy will vouch for all the burned pots and pans that seem to happen every so often.

      Seriously, Rusticliving, your recipes for these delicious dips have my mouth watering. I really want to try the cottage cheese and olive dip. Gosh, it sounds good.

      Oh yay! I love dip - and I always have it for an appetizer for guests. I cook quite a bit - so I like to keel munchies out for grazing and chatting before dinner. Keeps the guests busy so I can slip away and finish dinner:)

      Thanks! These are awesome - I can't wait to especially try the cottage cheese and olives!
