Folks are sure to gather around this ooey-gooey, lightened-up dip whenever it's placed on any buffet table. With cheese, jalapenos and a hint of lemon, it's a treasured favorite of Mary Spencer's and her family in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
"This tasty appetizer is similar to the version served in restaurants, but it has a fresh homemake flavor that keeps everyone dipping," remarks Cathy Carroll from Grayson, Louisiana. "It's a cheesy scrumptious snack that always results in recipe requests."
The light green, fresh-tasting dressing is the perfect accompaniment for steamed artichokes. CW's test kitchen staff liked the dip so much, they suggested making a double batch and thinning it down with a little milk to use as a regular salad dressing.
I keep a can of artichoke hearts in my pantry so I can quickly make my signature appetizer at a moment's notice. I find wheat or whole grain crackers nicely complements the artichoke. Everyone likes this warm spread.—Susan Kruspe, Shortsville, New York
