Need recipe for dip or spread

Does anyone have a recipe for a good dip or spread. I need to make 2 appetizers. I already know I'm making a cheese ball but need one more recipe. Something that can be served with a cracker assortment or a variety of veggies.

How about Greek Tzatziki, a yoghurt-based dip?

Sorry but I'm not a fan of yogurt. I've tried and tried but just can't seem to acquire a taste for it.

Perhaps Guacamole, hummus or tuna salad.

This is one of our family favorites. It is fast and easy to make and most of the time I have the ingredients in my pantry. The addition of minced garlic to this recipe will add more zip. I use the zesty version of the dry Italian salad dressing.

Italian Vegetable Dip

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 envelope Italian salad dressing
cup finely chopped green bell pepper
cup finely chopped red bell pepper

Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and dry salad dressing. Stir in red and green bell pepper. Refrigerate. Serve with crackers, bread sticks, or a vegetable tray.

Sizz,
just about everybody on earth has tried the onion dip that comes from the packet of dried soup mix..But, I've made this one and my family just loves it. An old standby with a new twist. You need about 2 lbs of yellow onion, slice thin or about 6 med. 3/4 c. sour cream, small pack 4 oz. cream cheese 1 tea. worcestershire a drop or 4 of tabasco and salt and pepper. Just put onions in a skillet and cook til wilted and the amount looks to be just a fraction of the original amount I cook about 45 min on low they get soft andsweet this way. Then cool and stir in the rest of the ingredients and your salt and pepper to taste. Great with potatoe chips, but it also makes a great filling for an omelet.

Thanks everyone! Yes Andy M I did go and look but I'm in a pinch and can't go through all the posts because I'm going to be heading out of here soon to do my grocery shopping so I thought it'd be quicker just to ask.

Sierra and Kads............I'm going to go with both of yours......2 appetizers is great but 3 is even better. Thanks!

Sizz, in case you are still here, try this one.

1 block cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup feta cheese
couple cloves of garlic
chopped green pepper
chopped black olive
chopped tomatoes

Cream the cream cheese and sour cream and add the feta. (Do it with a mixer) Add in the minced garlic and blend well. Spread on a pie plate or in a squares tin. Then cover with the pepper, olive and tomatoes. Serve with crackers or the scoopy tortillas.
