They do everything from table a simple vegetable and make it taste great to create opportunities for the most incredible kitchen innovations. At Southern Living, we love sharing the wonderful ways dips can create great flavor sensations. Whether you’re enjoying dips on the holiday table, or simply looking for ways to create simple seasonal meals, dips can be a part of a quick-fix supper or be on the table as stars in themselves. Making dips doesn’t have to be difficult. If you want something rich and creamy, you can’t beat Julia Reed’s Lump Crab Mornay, full of lump crabmeat and heavy cream.
Staying in the same vein, you’ll also love our Warm Gumbo Dip. For an unexpected pairing of spicy and sweet, you’ll love a dip like our Cranberry-Jalapeño Salsa. Or, for something truly Southern, you can’t go past a Warm Turnip Green Dip or Hot Spinach-Artichoke Dip. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, your palate will love the flavor of Smoked Trout-and-Horseradish Dip, and the spice of Colby-Pepper Jack Cheese Dip will bring just the right amount of heat.
