Good party dip. Everyone liked it. I changed the cream cheese to a garden veggie cream cheese spread so it was already soft. Used cilantro instead of parsley. And for a awesome splash of color i used red orange and yellow peppers. Things I would change next time....... more cream cheese and a little less shrimp sauce. Also would add more horseradish to the sauce This is not " Zesty " at all. This is a good dip and is easy to throw together. Read More
