Brought it to a March Madness party and it was a hit! Substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream, and used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I also did the spinach/artichoke substitute b/c I just love spinach/artichoke dip. Will definitely save this recipe.
Warm Turnip Green Dip
To make the dish spicier, offer guests several brands of hot sauce on the side.
