I love inviting my girlfriends over for a big girly catchup, and when I do it’s always good to have a dip on hand to snack on while I get dinner together. This dip is so easy to whip up; it makes quite a lot, so you can prepare this at the beginning of the week and take it in to work as a snack, too.
