This wonderful, colourful dip is very popular and really looks beautiful. It became widely known in the 1980s. When you spread the different dips on the platter, make each new layer slightly smaller than the one before, so all the different colours and textures show. Substitute your favourite refrigerated dips for any of the layers to make it even easier!
