Horseradish Bacon Ranch Dip

This is not your average veggie or ranch dip. Years ago my Mom, sister and I were hosting a bridal shower. We made several things and we bought a few things. We had a caterer prepare a veggie tray and maybe a fruit tray. To be honest the veggie tray was the only thing that made an impression. When I picked up the tray it was loaded with lots of non-typical veggies and what appeared to be ranch dip. At least that is what I thought. There in the middle of the blanched green beans, red pepper strips, and quarter mushrooms was a big surprise. People kept asking what is in this dip. Well I didn't know. I thought it was ordinary ranch dip until I tasted it. It was most definitely not Ranch, it was Horseradish Bacon Ranch Dip! Oh my! It was so good! It was smoky from the bacon and had just a hint of horseradish. Since then I have been replicating this veggie tray and dip. I have made the dip with full fat sour cream, fat free sour cream and fat free yogurt. All are very good but I like making it with light sour cream. It is delicious and a little healthier for you. Trust me know one will know. They will just be amazed at the bacon in their ranch dip. I love the blanched green beans with this dip the most. I hope you will give it a try. After all football season is upon us and you just may need a veggie tray soon.

Horseradish Bacon Ranch Dip
Makes 2 cups


2 cups light sour cream
1 packet ranch dip mix
2 tbsp prepared horseradish
2 tbsp bacon bits(approx. 4 slices)


Mix together and let sit in refrigerator for a few hours to let flavors blend together.

Serve with your favorite veggies. Blanched green beans, carrot sticks, red bell pepper strips and quartered mushrooms make great dippers.

  1. This dip sounds so good! Dips are one of my serious weaknesses, I could easily go through a bag of chips and a bowl of dip in one sitting!!!!! This sounds delicious with all the horseradish and bacon!!! The perfect combination!

  2. Easy and tasty sounding tailgating treat. I was glad to see this Love Bakes Good Cakes. I hope you'll come share at my party:
