What to Serve with Poolside Dip

This creamy ranch dip will be a huge hit with family and friends! You will need to have plenty of things ready to go to scoop it up! Although you can’t go wrong with this dip, here are some of my favorite things to serve it with.

  • Crackers: A salty cracker is the perfect platform for this creamy dip!
  • Chips: A thick tortilla chip will be best to scoop without breaking your chip.  Frito’s scoops work great!
  • Fresh Veggies: This colorful dip looks great on a veggie platter with carrots, celery, and broccoli!

This creamy ranch dip can be made ahead of time and stored for days! It’s easy to whip up the day before you need it so you don’t have to spend time making it on the day of your party.

In the Refrigerator: Once you have made your dip then, store it in an airtight container and put it in your fridge. It will last about 3-4 days.
