Crab & Artichoke Dip from Sneaky Blends by Missy Chase Lapine

Crab and Artichoke Dip

This dip is so decadent you almost won’t believe it doesn’t have the cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and tons of Parm that traditional versions have. It’s important to use real Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese that has the official Italian D.O.P. seal (you’ll see those letters on the rind). It’s more expensive, but it tastes light-years better than the ordinary Parmesan you find at the store.
