Carrot and Spinach Dip

Need a quick and delicious appetizer?  Carrot and Spinach Dip is a delicious dip loaded with spinach, fresh carrots, celery, plus 5 additional ingredients.  It’s simple to make, and about 10 minutes to prepare, this luscious dip will make the perfect appetizer for entertaining.

We love to incorporate fresh vegetables into simple dips like this one.  This recipe is adapted from our favorite dip, our easy cold spinach dip.

Any time we add more fresh veggies into a dip = a healthier appetizer!

For me, this carrot and spinach dip works as the perfect appetizer while everyone is waiting for dinner.  It allows me to get dinner on the table without the pressure.  If everyone is happy munching on something that contains veggies, than I am too.

This dip is no only lusciously creamy and so delicious, but also offers a crunchy texture with every bite.

This recipe yields 4 cups.  So don’t let our photo fool you.

I was lucky enough to have one cup leftover to take these photos with. 😉

  • You’ll be thrilled to know your family is eating healthy greens and carrots before dinner.  I know I am – every time!
