Happy Labor Day! I've really grown to like Labor Day. Before I always thought it was just a stupid holiday like Flag Day or Columbus Day, but now I really like it! You know why? It's the only holiday out there that's just for you. For you, the hardworking, under-appreciated working man/woman. So go out and celebrate it! Enjoy the great outdoors, have a cookout, build a fire, and eat some of the last fresh, summer vegetables that you'll get until next year.
This recipe is very "midwestern." Which is not mutually exclusive of "delicious." Yes, it has mayonnaise. Yes, it has ranch dressing. Yes, it has unsophisticated yellow cheese. It's not made with créme fraiche or a vinaigrette or some fancy cheese that comes from a goat. This is an american dish for an american worker!
Recipe from Aunt Mary
2 packages Crescent Rolls
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c. mayonnaise
1 package Ranch Dressing Mix (make sure it's the original)
1. Place the crescent rolls in the bottom of a jelly roll pan. (They don't have to be perfect in there, they will cook up together).
2. Bake at 450˚ for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
3. Let cool while you mix together cream cheese, mayo, and ranch dressing.
4. Cut up all your vegetables (feel free to use any raw veggies that you like - especially ones that you may have grown in your garden over the summer).
5. Spread cream mixture onto the dough.
6. Top with all the vegetables.
7. Sprinkle with cheese.
8. That's it! Take it outside and enjoy the day!
