Dips are a prerequisite for anyone who is planning to host a holiday party. In general, dips are good party foods because they don’t need to be hot in order to be served. And for those throwing the party, most dips are quick and easy.
One of my favorites is spinach dip. One reason is that not everyone is a meat eater, so appetizers such as buffalo wings and cocktail wieners are not an option. A quick and easy spinach dip recipe is perfect for a vegetarian appetizer when served with crackers or vegetables.
Here’s a spinach dip recipe that is the epitome of quick and easy. It’s from the Real Women of Philadelphia website (http://realwomenofphiladelphia.com/), one of five the blog is promoting for the holiday season.
