In the great pantheon of Super Bowl Sunday snacks, dip is up there next to chicken wings and pigs-in-a-blanket. Dip is easy to prepare and share, you needn't bother with utensils, and, what's more, the crunchiness off fresh veggies, crackers, and chips helps work out everyone's aggression. Whether you're rooting for the Colts or bleeding black and gold for the Saints (or if you're mostly just excited for all the mid-day snacking) BHG.com shares four delicious dip recipes that take just 10 minutes to prepare.
Get the rest of your game plan together with BHG.com's Best Game-Day Snacks, hearty Slow-Cooker Appetizers and Top-Scoring Tailgating Recipes.
1. Savory Party Dip

2. Smoked Salmon Dip
This decadent Smoked Salmon Dip has a smoky, refined flavor and rich texture, festively garnished with fresh chives and a cucumber slice. Serve with dippers such as fresh green peas, carrots, zucchini, or, if you're feeling fancy, toast points.
3. Arugula-Cannellini Dip
