Do the Dip
Dips are extremely versatile appetizers that can be made to satisfy a range of culinary desires, from sweet to spicy and everything in between. Cold fruit dips, which can be made in low-fat or more decadent versions, can be served with any variety of vitamin-packed fruit, particularly strawberries, pineapples and apples. Try the Dreamy Orange Cheesecake Dip, and serve it with melon and berries.
Warmer dips, such as Creamy Artichoke Parmesan Dip and Creamy Cheesy Spinach Dip are easy-to-make selections that can be served atop warm bread or pita chips. Layered dips are another classic option. If you're in the mood for a slightly off-the-wall, but equally delicious alternative, consider auditioning chunky pecan and beef dip or hot pepper cranberry jelly dip for guests interested in broadening their dip horizons.
