This weekend the entire family is at my mom's house to celebrate Mother's Day. My sister is down for a visit from NYC, so it's extra special that we can all get together. My mom used it as a reason to make this yummy dip. I'm keeping it in mind for any future pot lucks. The fact that we all liked it best at room temperature means I can make it ahead.
