This shrimp dip is a layered dip of cream cheese, shrimp cocktail sauce, tomatoes, green onions, cheese, and shrimp. Take it to a cocktail party and serve it with some gourmet crackers or your favorite chips. It's a nice little twist on your typical shrimp cocktail dip.

Tips for Serving Appetizers
My family loves to serve appetizers on Christmas Eve. Here are some tips I’ve learned during the Holidays for preparing or serving appetizers in a large family.
- Have a variety of appetizers available served warm or cold.
- See if there are other ways to prepare the appetizer so you’re not constantly using the oven in your home or someone else’s. Slow Cookers or Air Fryers are great for this reason.
- Many appetizers can be made ahead of time. See what ingredients in the recipe can be cooked the day before.
- Have plenty of fancy serving platters around to arrange the appetizers on. Dips and fancy spreads look nice on a white serving tray.
