Try serving the dip with fresh vegetables and I like to use cucumber rounds.  They make it easy to scoop up the dip.  Try cutting bell peppers into squares also or use squash round.  These are better for you and these veggies compliment this easy spinach dip.  Also, I like to serve my dip in a bread bowl and then clean up is so simple.
