Are you scheduled to have a house/apartment full of people this holiday weekend?

Or, are you mooching off your “good” friends?

Either way, you should definitely have a dip.  And no, not a dip in the pool–I’m hoping you’re already planning to do that.   Here’s a quick dip recipe for you to print out and put in your back pocket (or beach bag) for your last minute weekend grocery trip.  It’s easy to make and will compliment any classic 4th of July burgers-and-dogs barbecue.
