GRIDIRON POTATO DIP

You may have to urge your tailgaters to try this dish, because it looks a bit odd, but if they like potatoes, they'll probably like this unusual dip.

2 cups frozen Ore-Ida Mashed Potatoes (firmly packed)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup light or regular ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup plum tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup red, orange and/or yellow bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata or ripe olives, chopped'
1/4 cup red onion or chives, chopped
1/4 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Prepare potatoes according to package directions using 1 cup milk for 6 minutes in microwave (3 to 4 minutes on the stove top). Stir remaining ingredients into potatoes -- cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with pita or bagel chips and fresh vegetable dippers, such as wedges of bell peppers and carrot and celery sticks. Makes 3 cups.
