Chilled Spinach and Artichoke dip

My best friend and I love sharing recipes, and having ladies night once a month to try them out with friends.

When she got engaged, I threw her a shower, and chose to make a variety of dips for the menu. This was her favorite and made an encore at the wedding!

NOTE: Over the summer, I discovered that if you melt a couple tablespoons of this dip with a stick of butter or margarine, and then roll your corn-on-the-cob in it... O.o ...just... Just try it!!

Serves:

15-20

Prep:

1 Hr

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

24 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 c
real mayonnaise
1 pkg
dry italian salad dressing mix
2 c
monterey jack cheese, shredded
2 c
fresh spinach leaves, chopped
3-4 can(s)
brined artichoke hearts, (14.5 oz)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Set artichokes to drain in a colander.
2
Chop spinach and set aside.
3
With a knife, trim the toughest ends of the artichoke leaves and discard. This is the most labor-intensive step, but so worth it. It's also a little heart-breaking, as the artichokes are not cheap; take care not to trim away too much tender artichoke flesh!

Chop remaining hearts to desired coarseness. I like mine in 1/2"chunks.
4
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, mayonnaise, and italian dressing mix until smooth. Add shredded jack cheese and mix thoroughly.
5
Fold in spinach and hearts. Place in serving dish before chilling.
