• Michelle Roth, Punta Gorda, Florida, remembers a dip her great-aunt brought to family gatherings. It was made with cream cheese, Thousand Island dressing, and possibly sweet pickle relish. “The dip was not creamy, like a sour cream dip, but stiff like cream cheese,” she writes.

Do you have a favorite dip recipe – for fruits, veggies, bread, crackers or chips? Does your family like a particular sour cream dip? Or perhaps you’re the one everyone asks to make a cream cheese dip. If so, would you share your recipe?
