This is a marvelous dip that’s excellent for tailgating parties and especially as an appetizer to put out for company before a big dinner–like Thanksgiving! Parmesan Ranch Dip is amazing. It starts with sour cream, then you add dry ranch dip, parmesan cheese, fresh basil, orange and red bell peppers, and green onions. You can serve this with potato chips or crackers, but it’s also excellent on veggie dippers.

Parmesan Ranch Dip is really great as a snack for after school or on Saturdays when you’re in between ball games with your kids. It’s also great to bring along to any kind of potluck or party.
