Chips and dip is the all-time greatest party dish because of the endless variety it offers. From tortilla chips and guac to za’atar-dusted pita chips and homemade asparagus hummus, there are so many chip-and-dip combinations to dream up, your imagination is the only limit.

For pleasing a crowd

After a blind taste test, our panel crowned Tostitos medium salsa as the ultimate crowd-pleaser, thanks to the nostalgia factor—it tastes like awkward middle school parties and summertime backyard barbecues. Is this salsa the most flavourful? Nope. But there’s something appealing in knowing you won’t offend anyone with this choice. Plus, it’s available everywhere, from grocery stores to gas stations, so you can easily pick it up if you need a party-ready snack in a pinch.

Fool your guests with pico de gallo, available near the hummus (and other creamy dips) in most supermarkets.

If you don’t feeling like spending time hunched over a cutting board, choose one of these for a fresh salsa that’s great with chips and on tacos and nachos.

Whether you want to create a beautiful centerpiece for your kitchen table or a hand-wrapped bouquet to give as a gift, here are Stembel’s most helpful DIY tips for transforming grocery store flowers into professional arrangements. 1. Select a Mix of Colored and Neutral Flowers Flower power! Photo by Farmgirl Flowers First things first: You need to choose your flowers. Stembel recommends selecting a mix of brightly colored and neutral ones for a balanced bouquet. “Select three different types of flowers in complementary tones or whichever ones are your faves,” she says. “I usually pick one bright color to pair with a couple muted or neutral tones. It’s an easy recipe that’s hard to get wrong.” 2. Vary the Shape of the Flowers Play around with textures.
