Photo Description:

You can see how the grated apple gives the dip a nice texture and if you want a firm dip, firm enough to spoon on to tortilla chips like in the photo, you may add more apple and use less ranch dressing. In this picture a spoonful of dip sits on a tortilla chip and a sprig of cilantro is used to garnish it. Serving the dip out of a bowl with the chips on the side is a more conventional way of doing things but it is always nice to find new serving techniques and get ideas about how to present your food attractively.
