recipe: Tomato, Artichoke & Basil Dip

It’s super bowl week! I’m excited for the parties. Getting a large group together to watch some football never hurt anybody…especially when I don’t really care who wins this year. So, even if you don’t have a dog in this weekend’s upcoming fight, I know many of you many of you will be hosting or attending some fun watch parties. With that being said, I want to introduce a new favorite: this tomato, artichoke and basil dip. This dip has absolutely risen to the top of my must-make-for-guests list. Simply put, the flavor is amazing and the freshness will not disappoint!

The genesis of this dip started with a spread Eric’s mother buys at a local grocery store. I’ve been obsessed with it for several months now, and I was even more sure I could figure out the recipe. In fact, all I needed was a rainy and cold Friday night + a quick trip to the grocery store. The gist of this spread is this: SIMPLE. EASY. Yet packed full of flavor! (not to mention, it’s gluten free, vegetarian and extremely healthy)

Serve with pita bread, bagel chips, or crackers. Enjoy!
