Holiday Spinach Dip

I like to keep the  ingredients for this festive dip on hand in December. I can whip up some dip and serve it with crackers when friends stop by and it’s always a big hit at pot lucks. Of course I also make a batch for Christmas Day. We often get together with our extended family and it always takes quite a while to get everyone there and finish up dinner. The dip makes the perfect appetizer and keeps the kids (and grown-ups) fed and entertained while the ham finishes baking and the side dishes are set up. I hope you and your loved ones will enjoy this holiday spinach dip as much as we have.

Serve it in a bread bowl or use a pretty Christmas bowl and assorted crackers and pita slices.
