I actually won a local contest with this recipe. Our favorite restaurant who served the best dip closed down...and we could not find another that was even close, so I came up with this home-made replica, which is just as delicious!
A really great tapa that will get you many compliments. Really simple to make. The original recipe was by Roxanne. I have served this at many of my "Wine and Tapa" parties and was always pleased by the response.
This is such an excellent recipe for a quick, week night meal. Loads of flavor and something different to have. I printed this off a food blog and now I can't find which blog it was from! I modified the recipe to the tastes of my family, and we all loved it.
My friend made this at a party and I just had to have her recipe. This is the best artichoke dip that I have ever tasted. You might want to double the recipe because this stuff will go very quickly! I've made this several times now and the key is to rinse the spinach well before putting it in the recipe. Otherwise you will have green dip! Other cheeses, and cheese blends work fine in place of the parmesan. However, I feel the parmesan gives the best flavor combination. Fresh lemon juice really makes this recipe different from other spinach artichoke dips and adds a much needed zing to the recipe. Its also best to use the freshest garlic you can get your hands on.
FLAVOR GALORE! Great for parties or serve for Super Bowl event. Watch out -- this dip is ADDICTIVE! Great served on Triscuits Thin Crisps, Club or Ritz crackers. If you want more zing or bite increase garlic powder or hot pepper sauce. For best results do not exceed amount of butter or mayonnaise. A good inexpensive dip for parties and you may want to double the recipe for a party. Oh Man, this is good!!!
