Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Standard

Oooh….it just reminds me of home!  Pretty much every restaurant that you go to in the states has this on the appetizers menu, but here in the UK it just doesn’t exist.  I made this dip for our friend’s Christmas party a couple of years ago, and now it is required that I bring it to all of our get togethers.  It is ridiculously simple, and while not exactly low in fat, it does provide a good amount of vitamins A, C, and K, iron, folate, fiber and antioxidants from the veggies.
