This mozzarella and Parmesan cheese dip recipe is one you'll want to add to your appetizer recipe repertoire. The cheeses are mixed with mayonnaise, sour cream, dried minced onion and oregano to make a flavorful and unusual dip. This is a no-bake, chilled dip for veggies, chips, pretzels, crackers, breadsticks and more. You might even try it on a baked potato or dolloped on cooked vegetables like steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Use fresh Parmesan cheese in your recipes whenever possible, preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano from Italy. The processed canned Parmesan cheese doesn't quite measure up. And if you want to take things a step further, you can make your own mayonnaise.
