Oriental Layer Dip

One of my favorite meals is a sesame ginger salad (I’ll get the recipe up here sometime). It has a unique twist, is refreshing, and makes my taste buds extremely happy.

This dip is a play on that salad. A cream cheese base layered with some tasty toppings all pulled together with a dressing that will make you want to come back for more.

Serve with sesame chips and don’t forget you can adjust the toppings to fit your taste and even the ingredients in the dressing. (If you don’t have hoisin and don’t feel like buying a bottle, just leave it out. I think you’ll still enjoy the finished result.)

      I haven’t tried it when veggie chips, but that sounds really good! (I might have even some of it plain, so I think it would be good no matter what it was on. 🙂 ) You’ll have to let me know what you serve it with if you ever try it!
