Just for fun, I mixed my favorite recipes for spinach dip and shrimp spread together in one bowl. Our snack-loving family is crazy about the Cajun-flavored combination!—Lisa Huff, Clive, IA

"This was pretty good. Next time I will put in half the amount of spinach. I felt it tasted too much like a spinach dip and drowned out the shrimp flavor."

"I made this dish for a baby shower and everyone in attendance enjoyed it. In addition to sprinkling the chopped green onions on top of the spread, I also added some to the spread itself. By keeping frozen cocktail shrimp and chopped spinach on hand in the freezer, you can easily whip this spread up in a jiffy."
