Side dish for tonight!!

I am going to a small potluck tonight it is for a committee board meeting. Usually someone brings a taco dip or cheeseball. What is an easy side I can pick up or throw together fast. I am at work today and only have about 20 mins to throw something together. It doesnt have to be homemade.

  • Shrimp cocktail Cream Cheese Dip

    block or 2 of cream cheese
    tiny shrimps
    shrimp cocktail sauce
    Wheat Thins or Ritz Crackers

    Put the cream cheese on a dish or platter. Put shrimp over the cream cheese. Pour Sauce over that! Voila! Really yummy too!

    Spinach Dip Bowl- Most grocery stores have a premade spinach dip. Grab some and a sourdough bread round. Cut a circle into the top of the bread, pull out the bread and break it into pieces. ( you may want to buy an extra loaf and break that up too. Put the spinach dip inside the " bread bowl". Put on a platter and serve with the broken bread pieces around it.

    You could always call a favorite restaurant and see how much they'd charge for a large appetizer platter. My MIL always does that at a local mexican restaurant. For $30.00 she gets a huge platter with enough food on it to feed at least 20 people.

  • I would probably just go and get some potato salad or cole slaw from the deli.

  • Hummus, sugar snaps, carrot sticks and pita chips.


    You can buy premade hummus (Cedars is best, Sabra is second best), or make your own in about 1.5 minutes. You can buy premade pita chips, or make your own. This is the world's best hummus (though I add a pinch of cumin): http://www.dedemed.com/index.php/Vegetarian-Recipes/Hummus.html

  • I make shoepeg corn dip that I think is great. 1 block of cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, 1 pkg of shoepeg corn (baby white corn). Microwave it until it's all blended together. I add rotel or jalapenos for a kick. I use scoops to dip in it.

  • I like all of the ideas. Also sometimes stores have vegetable trays already fixed. That would be another idea.

    Thanks for the recipe, admckenzie, I'm going to try it.
