At Sips & Bites we love to tweak a classic. This is a riff on a favorite game day snack — spinach artichoke dip. When we cater events, we find it’s more special if everything is made in individual servings. This is much cleaner and better-looking than a big communal bowl of dip, but has the same familiar homey taste. Dill is a classic combination with spinach, and the dipping sauce adds the creamy component that the original dish is known for.

These spinach artichoke balls can be made super simple by using frozen chopped spinach, but if you have the time it’s even more delicious with fresh spinach. Blanch 3 lbs of fresh spinach for 1 minute in boiling water, drain, cool, squeeze dry and chop.
