this recipe is spot on, it rocks. all i change is that i use real bacon when i can, and wild leeks..not the huge store bought ones..and oh, as for the salad dressing, make a note that it is *miracle whip* not ranch, italian, etc. it means mayo, salad dressing. just to clarify...i know a lot of people who mess that up than down it because they did it all wrong Read More

I don't think I used the right kind of "creamy dressing". I used a creamy italian and it didn't taste very good. I think that if I would have used a ranch it would have tasted better. I will try again with a creamy ranch. Read More

What a wonderfully fresh alternative to packaged onion dip! My whole family loves this! I served it as a spread tonight, on fresh bread with tomato slices. It is such a versatile dip, you can add your personal favorites to it as well, like Red Devil, water chestnuts, shredded carrots, or minced black olives. I definately will be making this again and again! Can't wait for next year's leeks already! ~DonnaJ Read More

We used to make eat this dip all the time in Slovakia before I came to the US. We love our cheese dips and have a wide variety to compliment our endless bakery goods. This one particular recipe is a very popular dip. You just have to make sure you are using Salad Dressing like a Miracle Whip and not an actual dressing. Read More

I modified a little to reduce the calories. I used light whipped cream cheese light sour cream (instead of the creamy salad dressing) Lemmon Juice (instead of white vinegar) and 50% less fat Hormel Bacon Crumbles black pepper to season. IT WAS A HIT! Read More

This dip was awesome good! Only change I made was adding about 1 cup of grated swiss cheese. This will be a regular repeat for us. Also I was glad to read in a review that the "creamy salad dressing" was aka Miracle Whip. I was about to use Ranch dressing. Read More
