Bridal Shower Brunch

Since a bride is always concerned with her weight prior to her wedding, I served this dip/dressing with different kinds of fresh veggies. It was a huge hit with the bride and all the bridesmaids.

Smoky Blues Dressing

The addition of chopped, smoked almonds, makes this recipe special. The blue cheese flavor is strong and a little of the dressing goes a long way.
