Tuesday Treats: BLT Dip

I'm going to try to be a little better about staying on track with my "Tuesday Treats" theme!

I was going to have a little get-together last Thursday night, and then woke up with a stomach virus -YUCK! So, I had to reschedule for this Thursday night. I like to keep the snacks very simple, so I'm just doing chips and a couple different dips, and some cookies. This BLT dip from the Southern Living Ultimate book of Appetizers sounded really good, and SIMPLE! I'll let you know how it turns out!

BLT Dip
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 (8 ounce) sour cream
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 large tomatoes, chopped

Combine mayonnaise and sour cream in a medium bowl, whisking until blended. Stir in bacon and tomato. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 cups

For a spicier version, use salsa in place of the tomatoes. For a lighter version, use nonfat mayonnaise, fat-free sour cream, and turkey bacon. You can even enjoy it as a chunky salad dressing!

I heard your party tonight was Fabulous! Sorry I missed it :(

And by the way-the Christmas card project I did on my other blog-I did not include the card you sent because it was my absolute favorite that we received this year and I plan to frame the whole thing! I didn't want to cut it up!
Anyway-I just thought of that for some reason.
