best dip ever

Pineapple Cheddar Spread
10 Servings Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
Celery sticks

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise and soy sauce until smooth. Beat in the cheddar cheese, pineapple, almonds, green pepper and onion. Serve with celery. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.

1. I have made this dip about 247 times in the last month. Or something close to that number.
2. I have never added almonds.
3. Nothing against almonds, just not on my regular grocery list.
4. I have also never served with celery sticks because, I mean, look at the cream cheese and mayo. Let's not kid ourselves that this is healthy.
5. Also, nothing against celery sticks. Celery is on my regular grocery list.
6. But so is veggie chips and crackers. Which is what we dip into this yumminess.
7. Double the recipe.
8. Trust me.
9. Oh, and add a little black pepper.
10. Finally, find a park bench to pass to take a quick little yummy-dip-induced-nap.
