Vegetable Bars

The first time I had these was at a shower and Shirley Hartley brought them.  I loved them so got the recipe and have been making them often.  They have a beautiful presentation because they are so colorful with all the vegetables.
2 tubes of refrigerated Crescent Rolls
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2- 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 envelope Ranch dressing mix
3/4 cup of te following:
chopped green peppers (red and greeen would be nice for Christmas)
grated carrots
chopped broccoli
sliced cauliflower
siced scallions
diced tomato--peeled and seeded
3/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
Cover bottom of 11" X 17" pan with unrolled sheets of crescent dough (pat and stretch to fit). Bake 350 degree oven until lightly browned (7-8 min) Let cool.
First layer:
In a mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, sour cream cream cheese, and ranch dressing mix. Spread on colled crust in pan.
Second layer:
Combine the veggies and toss to mix with cheese. Spread over the first layer in pan. Cover with plstic wrap and press the vegetable/cheese mixture into the first layer.
Refrigerate (still covered) at least 3-4 hours. Can be prepared the day before. Cut into small bars just before serving. Makes 5 dozen bars.
