Why Is This Dip Also Called Frog Dip?

One of my mom’s dear friends (who is very witty!) also makes this dish. She has always loved to make things fun by renaming foods or creating little songs about normal items. She dubbed this dip “Frog Dip” because of its light green color with “spots” of broccoli and the name has stuck!
