This dip is so easy and so tasty and so absolutely yummy ... it's so hard to believe that it's so acceptable for us to eat!

Artichoke dips aren't uncommon, nor are artichoke dips with parmesan and/or frozen spinach (all good combinations in their own right!). I just happened to have a bunch of basil lying around and a bunch of pesto in the freezer at the time. When I saw that ... the whole thing just ... CLICKED! I'm glad it did, too! The end result is a thoroughly delicious and filling dip.

Enjoy it with Hazelnut-Parmesan Crackers!

Thank you! I just needed to make it the night before as well. Sounds perfect. Thanks for your help!
By the way, the hazelnut/parmesan crackers are delicious!

Hi Meredith. It depends on HOW FAR ahead, but ... Yes. Definitely. When I make it, I always make it the day before. I also typically make a big batch, so that some of it lingers in the fridge and I just snack on it for the following week. It keeps quite well, actually. I hope this helps! :-)

Hi Shawna, I mixed it in. I only added the dollop on top as a garnish. The rest is mixed in. You could do both, like I did in the photo. It works and is just as tasty!

Did you mix the pesto in the dip or just spoon it over the top? It looks tasty!
