BEST Low Carb Spinach Artichoke Dip!
When doing research for this particular recipe, I noticed that most spinach and artichoke dips share common ingredients in differing amounts. It’s a forgiving recipe ready for additions and substitutions.
I kept many of the ingredients for this recipe the same, but played with the quantities until I had something close to what I wanted. The addition of feta cheese contributes a nice salty tang. A very-dry sherry provides subtle sophistication (think fondue) while a hint of red wine vinegar heightens the over-all flavor.
While the ingredient list seems long, it mostly consists of cheese, spinach and artichoke hearts. The other ingredients contribute to creaminess and outstanding flavor. One thing I really appreciate is good flavor and I strive to deliver the best tasting recipes I can. Why eat it if it doesn’t taste great?
This recipe is fairly large (4 plus cups) and can be easily scaled in half for smaller gatherings. However, it is so good and versatile that you may want to make the whole quantity!
