Copycat Olive Garden Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by AndreaVT96

I found this recipe on a (since-forgotten) web-site years ago and have been making it since. It's a copycat of Olive Garden's Spinach and Artichoke dip. I find it extremely similar. Whenever I have to go somewhere that I bring an appetizer, this is always the one that is requested.

This is the recipe I use! It has the perfect texture. I've been using this for a couple years, although I too have no idea where I got it from. I use fresh spinach, wilted by microwaving it for a few minutes. I also add more garlic salt, a 1/4 tsp onion powder and some parsley. So yummy!
