    Creamy Spinach Dip Recipe

    Every now and then, I have a craving for a great spinach dip and really haven’t been able to find one I love in Kansas City. Sure, Houston’s and J Alexander’s is great, but neither is really convenient with kiddos and not quite what I’ve been craving.

    I still love my Houston’s recipe for large gatherings, but what I’ve been craving was much creamier, like one I can recall from a winery in Holt’s Summit we frequented when we lived in Columbia.

    So for lunch yesterday {yes, I consider dip lunch} I began experimenting and ended with a creamy spinach dip recipe that Chris described as “incredible” and “unbelievable.” This recipe makes a great last-minute appetizer because you can make it in just 10 minutes.

    Most restaurants serve spinach dip with pita bread or tortilla chips. I also love it with a great sourdough baguette – toasted or un-toasted. Bonus points for a little olive oil and sea salt brushed on top.
