Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!
Lately, I have found myself gravitating towards artichoke hearts. Whether on pizza, in salads, or added to a grain bowl, this versatile vegetable can do it all. However, this spinach and artichoke dip takes the gold! The flavors mingle together and create what may be the best spinach and artichoke dip I have ever tasted. If you are looking for an easy appetizer, give this one a try. Anyone who tastes it will be asking you where the recipe came from! Just make sure you set out your frozen vegetables and the cream cheese in advance of making the recipe so they have plenty of time to thaw.
