Make this dip a nice alternative to your standard holiday appetizers. Stir about 1 cup of dried cranberries into the spinach dip; it's fun, festive and adds a touch of sweetness and color.
A hollowed-out bread loaf makes the perfect “bowl” for your dip. Cube the bread removed from the loaf, and use for dipping.
