Family Heirloom Recipes

Holidays like Thanksgiving are rich in tradition.  Many families repeat the same meal year after year, generation to generation.

One family heirloom recipe from my mother's side is "pink dip".  My grandmother, Nonie, made it often and it was a standard part of our holiday meals.  It's a chip dip recipe from the 50s that goes incredibly well with salty things, like pretzels and potato chips.

Careful, it is addicting.
Nonie's Pink Dip
Makes just over 2 cups.

4 - 3oz packages of Philadelphia cream cheese at room temperature
2T plus 2t milk
2T plus 2t red french dressing, like Kraft Catalina
1/2 cup ketchup
2t Reese onion juice
1/4t salt

Combine and blend till smooth.
