    I make this with 1 C mayo and 1 C sour cream, then add water chestnuts and a can of quartered artichoke hearts, drained. Then right before serving I make sure it is extra creamy by stirring in a dollop more of mayo. All my friends request me to make this recipe and everyone likes it.

    I like the recipe on the Knorr Vegetable soup mix packet. Easy and delicious. But I'm hoping to try this one soon.

    I toast the bread pieces slightly on a cookie sheet so easier to dip with.

    A few diced water chestnuts are a wonderful addition.

    Good recipe but adding artichoke hearts cut up into very small bites really adds to the flavor and we love the artichoke hearts.
