Hot Cheesy Spinach Dip Southern Serving Suggestions
Gulf Coast Favorites
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.
Go Green and Full of Nutrition
Spinach might be one of my favorite green vegetables. I like it uncooked in salads and add spinach easily to any appetizer, pasta or side. Speedy Spinach Dip makes a quick delicious, super easy and fast recipe to throw together and best of all, this dip has only five ingredients. And, who doesn’t like Spinach Dip? By eating foods with a variety of color (like GREEN!) you will automatically be choosing healthfully, as the different colors in foods are evidence to important vitamins and minerals. You know spinach must be good for you because of its rich color. The bright green is proof that this leafy green contains many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Perfect Stirrer For the Stove Top Cheesy Dip
Three versions of bone-building dairy make this a creamy divine dip. With reduced-fat cream cheese, Swiss cheese, and skim milk you won’t have to feel guilty about going back for more. Melty gooey and creamy make this hot cheesy spinach dip a party favorite.
