Tips for Three Cheese Artichoke Dip
Yes! I've tested it with regular, low fat and fat free sour cream, and regular and low fat cream cheese. The dip turned out great each time.
Serve with crackers, crostini, or raw veggies. I love carrot sticks, red bell pepper strips, celery, and cucumber slices.
Serve three cheese artichoke dip warm enough that the top layer of cheese is still melted. If you need to make this in advance or it cools before you get a chance to dig in, just heat it up in the oven or microwave until the cheese is melted.
This salty, creamy artichoke dip goes well with a tart, crisp Blackberry Vanilla Martini.
