Best Bites: Spinach, artichoke and crab dip


Welcome to Best Bites, a twice-weekly video series that aims to satisfy your never-ending craving for food content through quick, beautiful videos for the at-home foodie. Check back on Tuesdays and Thursdays for new episodes!

Take your appetizer game to the next level with this twist on one of our favorite classics. Melted cheese, a little greens and fresh crab?! Yes, please!

This dish is the perfect way to say goodbye to summer while still utilizing one of summer's best ingredients: crab. A little heavier than most summer hors d'oeuvres, this recipe is hearty enough to warm the belly on chillier, almost-fall nights, but still summery enough to feel like a celebration.
