  • 1 small jar marinated quartered artichokes chopped
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan finely grated
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt garnish

Instructions
 

  • Add thawed spinach and chopped artichokes to 1 cup boiling water. Boil five minutes, remove from heat, and drain thoroughly.
  • Add spinach and artichokes to medium sized mixing bowl, and add cream cheese. Mix well. Add sour cream, mix well again, and then add mayo and finish combining until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

Notes

Tomatoes are optional, but really enhance the flavor of this dip. This app can also be served with pita bread, pita chips, tortilla chips, veggies, or really with any vessel of your liking. Enjoy!
