Tangy Artichoke Toppers

This tasty heart-healthy dip is an easy-to-prepare alternative to salsa. Try adding chopped water chestnuts for a little crunch.

1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, finely chopped
1/3 cup KRAFT FREE Italian Fat Free Dressing
4 oz. (1/2 of 8 oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. chopped roasted red peppers
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
48 TRISCUIT Low Sodium Crackers

MIX artichokes, dressing and Neufchatel cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Stir in peppers and parsley.
REFRIGERATE at least 1 hour. Spread 2 tsp. artichoke mixture on each cracker. Serve immediately.
