One of my favorite things to make when entertaining or when I have to bring something to a party or picnic is crab dip. Everyone always loves it, so when I saw this version, I knew I had to try it. I never made one with cheese before and it really is a game changer. The cheddar with the crab is a great combination!!! Bon Appetit!!!
