Ham and Cheese Dip at The Happy Housewife

This dip is perfect for parties!  It’s best served with a pita chip, crackers, torn bread bites or pepper slices.

What I love about it is that the base is made from Greek yogurt and Neufchatel cheese giving this dip a healthier foundation.  Add in extra sharp cheddar cheese, which allows you to use less cheese than you traditionally would need because the flavor is so strong, and you have an excellent-tasting, better for you dip.
