Raw Veggie Bars


1 pkg Pillsbury’s Poppin Fresh Hot White Loaf *
4 oz light cream cheese**
1 C finely chopped broccoli
1/2 C finely chopped tomatoes, peeled and seeded, or finely chopped red
1/2 pkg ranch salad dressing mix
1 C plain low-fat yogurt
1/4 C sliced green onions
1/2 C grated carrots

Spread Poppin’ Fresh Hot White Loaf on a 9 x 16 inch baking pan.
(Unroll loaf, like you would the biscuits that come in a can. Bake
according to directions and cool. (About 10 - 12 minutes, until
lightly browned.)

Blend thoroughly dressing mix, light cream cheese and yogurt. Spread
on Cooled bread. Press the vegetables into dressing mixture. Chill
and cut into squares.

*I can only find "French Bread" in the Pillsbury products, now - so
that's what I use.

**The original recipe called for light cream cheese that comes in a
tub. I don’t think it’s available that way anymore. Fat-free cream
cheese works very well, just DO NOT use a mixer with it (it will
liquefy). Just cream it in a bowl with a spoon.
