New Year's Worthy Party Dips


With Christmas barely in the rear view mirror, it's already time to be putting together a party menu worthy of ringing in the new year with all your favorite people.  One of the nice things about New Year's parties for me is that I don't feel the need for a sit-down menu.  I like to keep things easy with lots of small bites that let my guests move and mingle while enjoying good food throughout the night.

One way that I add lots of variety to my New Year's menu is with dips.  Whether for enjoying atop an artichoke leaf or with artichoke hearts mixed in, my philosophy is that there are never too many dips! :-)  But before I dive into a few dip recommendations, I want to share this quick and easy video tutorial on how to steam fresh artichokes on the stovetop:

Now for the dips...let's start with a trusted favorite! Fresh Spinach & Artichoke Dip is always a crowd-pleaser, and this guilt-free version with reduced fat cream cheese and nonfat Greek yogurt means you'll be prepared with a tasty treat for guests already committed to those healthy New Year's resolutions.

Add a little spice to your party with our Jalapeno Artichoke Dip! While this dip calls for baby artichokes, you can easily substitute artichoke hearts for the same delicious flavor and texture.

And what's a party without hummus?!?!  Step up your appetizer game with our homemade Artichoke Hummus Dip ready in just five minutes once you have your artichokes cooked and prepped.

Growing up on California's central coast, I enjoyed delicious artichokes around the family dinner table and always on Christmas Eve! It is beyond perfection that I now market artichokes for a living and get to share the Ocean Mist Farms story and my love of all things fresh.
