This was a big hit with my family, especially the men. I used Hot Bacon Rinds, made the dip even better. Gave it a little kick!

Who every heard of using turnip greens in a dip? I couldn't resist trying this recipe because I couldn't imagine any such thing. We LOVED it. I'll be serving it next week at our annual holiday party.
