While attending university, I put a layered dip together for friends hosting a game night. The colors really attract people to try it, then they won't leave the room until the whole thing is devoured. —midnitechef

  • 1 container whipped fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup light mayo

  2. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the plate or platter. If you are using a large platter, use a large container of cream cheese or two small ones.
  3. Finely dice the avacado, bell pepper, seeded tomato, and green onion tops.
  4. Layer each vegetable on top of one another, over the cream cheese layer.
  5. Top with cheddar cheese. (Option: reserve a few pieces of the green onion tops or chives to garnish)
