What To Eat With Spinach Dip
This creamy spinach dip is typically served in a bowl made of bread, and the bread is torn off and dipped into the dip. It would also go great with pita chips, corn chips or kale chips. To keep it low carb serve it with an impressive plate of crudités like celery, carrots, and cucumbers.
Use leftover dip as a filling for stuffed mushrooms or even stuffed chicken breast.
How Long Does Spinach Dip Last
Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Unfortunately because of the mayonnaise and sour cream, this dip does not freeze well. Or more accurately, does not thaw well. It can become watery and the milk proteins tend to separate when thawed.
To try to recover a frozen creamy dip, warm it on the stovetop. Add a bit of heavy cream and stir it well, which should bring back that lovely, creamy consistency. And Voila- a new warm dip to enjoy!
Best Tips For Dips!
Prepare the dip ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend together.
Serve the dip in a bowl that fits inside a slightly larger bowl with ice on the bottom. This will keep the dip cool and fresh all night!
Use full fat sour cream and mayonnaise for a rich, tasty and extra creamy dip!
