Ripe artichokes

 

Crab artichoke dip with spinach-what could be better?

Put these three key ingredients together and you have the makings of one helluva bash to be thrown in your mouth.

I made this last weekend and it was delicious.

I love spinach for all of it’s muscle building charms. That and the fact that Popeye could lay a good beating on a ripple-ing dude named Brutto after eating a can of spinach. Artichokes are a luxury by themselves, add them in the mix and whoo-haa what a treat. And crab -say no more -SAY no more!

My haggis eating mum says this dip isn’t a meal but I will argue and win because all the food groups have been represented once you serve this up in a bread bowl, or with naan bread or crackers or any other grainy product. They all taste good with this dip.

Serve it as a meal or eat it as an appy, either way you will be terribly satisfied that you made something so awesome.

I know that spinach dip is a thing of the 90’s -so what, it’s was rad to the bone then and it’s awesome now. Channel your 15 year younger you and make this dip today -as a meal.

This dip can be prepared in advanced for up to two days and heated just before serving.
