I've made this several times. It's always gobbled up! Do NOT leave off the cucumbers, they give it a wonderful flavor! This is one of the dips I make that EVERYBODY loves!

There are too many veggies in this to make it a good dip.

This recipe is awesome. I've made it twice now. The first time I used up some non-fat cream cheese that I had and the family loved it. This last time I used regular cream cheese and it was even better. I omit the lettuce and cucumber and put sliced black olives on top. I also started the bowl by slicing out a section and putting it on a plate -- that really helped because our guests weren't being agressive enough with it and were missing the bottom layer. My family knows better now and digs right in!

This dish is devoured everytime I bring it to an social event. When I get invited places, this is requested for me to bring. I make no alterations or additions, it's loved as is. It even presents very well. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

it was good...would try it again. i think next time i'll leave out the mayo and try to add more cream cheese and sour cream. i like thicker dips and the mayo made it too creamy for me. i wasn't sure about the cucumber on top or the cocktail sauce...but it works!!! i made it for a bridal shower and there wasn't any left!!!!

I made this for my 6-yr. old nieces' b-day party and I received a dozen requests for the recipe. I used light cream cheese and light mayo. no one new and there was no left.

I have made this many times and I never have any leftovers. I don't add as much lettuce and I omit the seafood sauce and I use medium or hot salsa. I add red, green and yellow peppers and both black and green olives and lots of cheese. I think you can add what every you like to the top and it will always be a big hit.

This was easy. It was good. It is a good party dip because you make it ahead of time. I would make it again. I did not include the cucumbers I don't know they seemed out of place.
