While we’re not entirely sure how the Neiman Marcus dip got its name – there’s mention of it being added to the flagship store’s restaurant menu in the 1950s – it turns out it’s not really important, as this dip is so good it completely stands on its own, regardless of what it’s called or where it came from.

With five ingredients, along with whatever chips or crackers you decide to serve this with, this Neiman Marcus dip is packed with cheese, bacon, almonds and green onions, made creamy with the help of some mayonnaise…it doesn’t seem like much, but all together, this dip packs a delicious punch that is a sure-fire hit every time we make it!
