Bridal Shower Recipes: Ranch Dip with Vegetables

As people were arriving at the shower, we served a simple veggie platter with this ranch dip.

The dip was easy to make and worked well with low-fat sour cream and mayo.  To reduce the amount of slicing and chopping we needed to do, we served with snow peas, cherry tomatoes, and baby carrots.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the dip and I was impressed with how much flavor the garlic, chives and parsley imparted to this sour cream and mayo-based dip.
