Meatless Monday: Classic Seven Layer Dip

Meatless Monday: Classic Seven Layer Dip

The best food is the one that brings you to a place of happiness.

I remember parties sitting around the table in my childhood kitchen with four hands digging into the Seven Layer Dip.

Then my college boyfriend, now husband, and I devouring that same dip that his mom made at a campsite in Indiana.

Now my kids do the same.

This dip is simple, always a crowd pleaser and there are ways to make it a little healthier than the version we ate in the 80s.
