If you read this blog with any regularity you will know that the bulk of my recipes tend to be in the appetizer category. I just like the idea of small plates and most of the entertaining I do starts with, or consists entirely of appetizers. With this in mind, I am always on the lookout for new apps to try. This recipe comes to you basically unchanged from the original found in Bon Appetit magazine. I discovered that the Nabisco company has a rye version of their Triscuit cracker which I thought went really well with this dip.
