Cucumber-Dill Shrimp Dip

Here's another great idea for the big game on Sunday. And when served with a variety of raw vegetables, it will help offset all the chips, brownies and other caloric items likely to be consumed!

Dill always feels like spring to me, and with the weather we've been having lately, it seems like spring! I hope you enjoy this dip - it's one of my favorites!

This is a recipe repeat. For full step by step instructions, visit the original post.
