Crab Artichoke Dip
Dungeness Crab Artichoke Dip
This is popular Crab and Artichoke Dip that you see in many seafood restaurants, you can easily make at home. Makes a tasty crab appetizer for any occasion. If you're having a party you can easily double the batch. And if you want to make it (seem) healthier, too, just add a package of frozen spinach to it. Just make sure you thaw it out and drain the spinach, first. Or you can use about 1/2 a package of fresh spinach. It doesn't take away from the original crab and artichoke recipe, it seems to enhance it. Of course, I love spinach, so I would think that. But this is totally up to you. It's nice to always have options and spruce up the ordinary recipes now and then. If you want to get even more creative and colorful with this dish...add sliced black olives!

Makes about 8 servings, but if you're like me and want to party down with friends, you can easily double this batch like we did! You simply can't go wrong! If you have left overs, just put them in a smaller container and refrigerate and reheat in the microwave. It'll stay in the frig. for up to 3-5 days.
