Crabmeat Dip with Ranch Dressing

A light stuff to have with Belgian Endives or Garlic Parmesan Bread! I had first tried this recipe during Christmas 2006 following Rachael Ray's recipe. When I wanted to make it again for this year's Christmas, I just could not find the recipe. I think it was similar to the one mentioned below...whatever it was, it was pretty similar. How else to console oneself? Just kidding. :)


1 Belgian Endive
Crabmeat 1/2 lb (I used Phillips Foods brand)
Onion - 1/2 small (or Green Onion - 2 stalks)
Yellow Capsicum - 1/4
Orange Capsicum - 1/4
Red Capsicum - 1/4
Celery - 1 stalk
Ranch Dressing - 2 tbsp
Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt as per taste
Hot sauce - few drops
Paprika Powder - 1/4 tsp

Chop the veggies into tiny pieces and then mix everything together. Easy, isn't it? :)

You can also add sour cream and cream cheese for added flavour. Check out one of those recipes here. Have fun!

What is Belgian Endive? Never heard of it before. Crabmeat dip looks great. I some crackers with me. Wanna share your dip?

Hi Kribha: Belgian endives is a veggie which has layers of green leaves. These leaves can be separated and used to serve the dip in. I get it in the Asian store H-Mart. Sure, feel free to take a virtual dip .. mind you, no double dipping!! :)
