Veggie Bars

Upon request from Tammy, here is the veggie bar recipe. These tasty treats are always a hit for any occasion, but we usually have them as a Christmas appetizer.

You will need:

2 crescent roll tubs
3/4 c. mayonaise
3/4 c. cream cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1 pkg. of Ranch Dressing Mix
Chopped up veggies (any of your favorites. I usually go to Safeway and go to the salad section and get pre-chopped veggies called Salad Confetti. This cuts out a lot of chopping. I do however add to the salad confetti 1 red, green, or orange pepper chopped up.)
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)

First open the crescent roll tubs and lay them flat onto a jellyroll pan. Press the triangular pieces together to form 1 large rectangle. They may or may not fill your pan. Don't worry if they don't. Bake as directed, however I had to pull mine out a minute early because they were looking too golden brown. Let cool.

Then whipped together the mayo, cream cheese, and sour cream and ranch dressing packet.
On the cooled flat crescent spread the cream mixture on like thick frosting. You may not need all of the cream mixture. I usually have some left over. Then sprinkle on the cheese. Next sprinkle on the veggies. Cut out into bars and serve or refrigerate until serving.

Good luck!
