Skinny Dip

June 4, 2017


The past few months have been an absolute whirlwind of events for me, and there are still many more to come!  So many people I love are getting married and having babies, so you can bet I've been attending non-stop showers.  This past weekend my mom and I hosted a bridal shower for my soon-to-be-sister-in-law, who we just adore.  We tried to keep things simple and purchased a lot of pre-made foods, but I just had to make one of my favorite party foods for everyone.  


You've probably seen the recipe for "skinny poolside dip" floating around pinterest (pun intended.)  I think I pinned that one about ten billion times before I finally gave it a try.  I have to disagree with the "skinny" part of the title... it's basically a ball of cream cheese.  Sure, it has lots of vegetables mixed in, but eating that much cream cheese is not going to make you skinny.  I also don't have a pool, nor have I ever eaten this dip by a pool.  So I'm going to drop the "poolside" from the title.  I like to call this "Skinny dip." So that's what I'll call it.


Here, my friends, is how i make "Skinny Dip."


Skinny Dip



1 Red Bell Pepper, diced

1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and diced

1/2 can sliced olives

1 can corn, drained and rinsed

2 packages reduced fat cream cheese (16 oz)

1 tbs Ranch Seasoning




  1. Let the cream cheese come to room temperature while you prepare the vegetables. 

  2. Combine the vegetables, cream cheese and ranch seasoning a large bowl. 

  3. Mix and mix and mix until everything is very well blended. 

  4. Serve, and enjoy! 


A few tips:

- I always serve this dip with wheat thins, but pita chips are good too! It's a dense dip, so it's hard to eat with breakable crackers. 

- Taste the dip before serving (I mean, it's hard not to once you see all the pretty colors combined.) I go really light on the ranch seasoning because I think it can get too salty too fast, but you might like a bit more pizazz!

- Don't serve it in the bowl you mixed it in.  It looks a LOT prettier if you just dump it into a fresh bowl.  It creates more dishes, but it's worth it in my opinion.
