Try serving the healthy spinach dip with fresh vegetables and I like to use cucumber rounds.  They make it easy to scoop up the dip. You can also cut bell peppers into squares or use squash rounds.  These are better for you and these veggies compliment this easy spinach dip. Savory Louisiana crawfish works well atop this classic dip for a winning combination.
