Garden Garbage Dip

I made this dip for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas eve. My sister raved about it so much that I need to send her the recipe. The only downside to this recipe is that there is a lot of chopping, but it is well worth it. This dip is versatile and can be easily adjusted to suit your taste.
