Planning a Neighborhood Potluck

This is the perfect time of year to get together with family and friends to celebrate the end of Summer! Throughout August we try to fit in as many end-of-summer get togethers that we can and to make it easier on everyone, we always do a carry-in. My house is the biggest in the family so everybody always comes here but since everybody brings something, it's not such a burden. I love visiting the farmer's market for fresh fruits and veggies this time of year too so I always have fresh fruit and veggie trays on my list!!!!

One of my favorite things to make is a simple veggie tray with dip. I buy, cut and clean vegetables like carrots, celery, cauliflower, tomatoes, broccoli and radishes and then I generally buy a store-bought vegetable dip. This time I thought I would try a new recipe off of the Hormel Foods Recipe site and boy am I glad I did! It's so refreshing to try new recipes now and again!!!!

Bacon and Apple Spinach Dip


1 1/2 cups sour cream

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

1 cup finely chopped apple

1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1 (2-ounce) jar Hormel® Real Bacon Pieces

1 (1-ounce) package dry vegetable soup mix


Just mix all of the ingredients together and ENJOY! This dip is not only awesome with veggies but also with bread and chips!!!!

Stay tuned this month for more awesome recipes that can be used at your next barbecue!!!! What are yourfavorite Hormel Foods products? Have you tried any new Hormel Foods products recently? Are there any Hormel Foods products that you use on a regular basis?
