For Nancy Citro, providing her popular appetizer for get-togethers has become a necessity. She pens from Cape Coral, Florida, "Friends joke that they won't go to parties unless I bring my dip.

"A real crowd-pleaser" is how Christine Halandras, from Meeker, Colorado, describes her baked spinach appetizer."Plus, it's so nice to make ahead of time," she adds. "You can quickly reheat it later or even serve it cold." The recipe makes a delicious vegetable entree or side dish, too—just cut the pieces into larger squares.

Benedictine is a creamy spread studded with chopped cucumbers.

Originally used for cucumber sandwiches, Benedictine is now commonly enjoyed as a cold dip for chips or spread on crackers.
