If you've ever attended a party where you stalked a particular appetizer plate like a panther...then you can relate to how I felt the fist time I dipped a soft and chewy cube of sourdough bread into a bowl of this Spinach Artichoke Veggie Dip. It wasn't wasn't my first time tasting this classic party dip, but something about this specific bowl was simply irresistible. It was the best version I had ever had!
Crunchy water chestnuts, artichoke hearts, and sweet little pimentos add such an addictive quality. Plus nothing can be less than delicious when it's served in a bowl made of bread. Here's the secret recipe from the hostesses themselves, my Two Chums.
