I rate the recipe 4 stars, but here's what I do to bring it up to a 5 (many dozens of potluckers agree):
*Paul Newman's Ranch dressing right out of the bottle. I don't have to mess with ratios of milk/mayo/sour cream/etc., and it is one of the few Ranch products that doesn't contain MSG.
*1 to 2 cups of chopped baby spinach. Sturdy flavorful leaf that doesn't wilt over time.
*Real Bacon bits, 10 - 20 T, add to taste. Not enough bacon may be one reason a few feel this recipe is bland.
*1 T minced garlic instead of powder.
*1/2 to 1 whole bunch of diced (I use scissors) scallions.
*1/2 c sun dried tomatoes (purchased dry, soaked in hot water for 5 min. before dicing).
*1/2 to 1 pint grape (or cherry) tomatoes sliced in half or thirds hold up better than a chopped whole tom
*for extra zing add 1 2.25 oz can of diced chili peppers or 1/4 cup of diced banana peppers.
* I find stirring all "dry" ingredients together first before adding ranch dressing makes mixing easier.
