Spinach Alfredo Dip is a wonderful starter for those evenings when you crave a perfect European meal. While some say that the spinach dip has its origins in German cuisine, I found this to be a common menu item at many Italian restaurants.
Everyone at my place loves and enjoys different dips for starters. The spinach alfredo dip is a 15-minute recipe and you have a great cheesy snack that is extremely easy to make. An appetizer suitable for both kids as well as grown ups at parties or get togethers. A versatile dish which goes best with garlic toast but can also be accompanied with pita chips or jalapeno chips.
Today you get a lot of varieties of flavored crackers that also taste great with this dip. I have also used olive and rosemary flavored crackers to go with the dip. Another option is baguette. You can slice it or you can serve it as I have done. Scoop a little of soft bread in the middle and create a bowl like shape and fill it with the dip.
About the Spinach Alfredo Dip
I first tasted this dip few years back at my favorite restaurant. I just fell in love with this dip and decided to try it at home. And after few trial and errors I came up with perfect recipe. Generally, the spinach artichoke dip is more common. But members at my home do not like artichokes. Hence, I decided to try something different – a combination of cream, cheese and herbs but without the artichokes.
For garnishing I have a sprinkled grated parmesan cheese which is almost 3 years old and you can guess it tastes amazing. I have also sprinkled chili flakes with crushed crispy spinach on top which gives it a nice look.
