Creamy Tuscan Spread
This Creamy Tuscan Spread is an appetizer that will be a hit at any get together. Come taste the flavors of Italy.
CREAMY TUSCAN SPREAD
One of the things that has always been on my bucket list is to go to Italy – along with becoming fluent in Spanish and skydiving. The Spanish thing, I mean come on. I live in Miami. I really have no excuse to not have learned it by now. Skydiving might have to wait until…well…never now that I’m a mom. Jury’s still out on that one. But Italy, ahhh. I’m sure I will make it there someday. No rush. Quite frankly I get pretty excited these days about a going to dinner and a movie.
But until then, I can get a little closer with this Creamy Tuscan Spread. Tuck this one in the “Seriously Easy and Divine” file. It’s filled with artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and onions. You can serve it with crackers, baguette slices, or cucumbers for a low-carb option.

Are the tomatoes in oil or dehydrated?
This looks delicious! Are the artichokes packed in water or are they the marinated kind?
I usually use the ones baked in oil but I’ve used both!
Christy, are you using sundried tomatoes that are packed in oil?
Yes, but you don’t have to use that kind.
I made this dip for my girlfriend’s bridal shower on Friday and everyone LOVED it! It was such a hit I’m making it again today for our family get together. Thank you so much for the awesome recipe!!
Made this last night for a appetizer/cocktail party. WOW! What a hit. A real winner.
Oh good to hear!
Made this yesterday to take to a party today. Wonderful! I’ll put this on my dip rotation list from here on out. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.
Ooh! Thank you! Now I want to make it again.
Would it be okay to make a day ahead of party?
Just about ALL dips are better day two. 🙂
Do you think it would be okay to make a day ahead for a party?
Hmm – don’t know what that was from ‘Sandra’ but moving on . . . I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried it with a non-dairy cream cheese? Do you think the proportions would be the same? Have a ‘dairy-free’ friend for whom I’m always trying to find alternatives to my ‘regular rotation’. This sound soooo YUM!
I think the proportions would be the same…
My dear,In Italy you’ll not find this creamy.It’s ‘nt italian recipe 😉 🙂
I need this. This looks so delicious!
I just made this last night! Everyone thought it was soo good…thank you!!!
I would like to say that you have some wonderful recipes. I just looked at the No fry ice cream. I was older than a child when I was wondering about that concept LOL. Anywhooooo, flying from Mexico to Italy—-this is a first rate dip. I love it when a dip is chuck full of things. It looks like you worked long into the night over it and it reality it is easy peasy.
You’re comment made me laugh! Hahaha.
I’ve recently discovered how much I love the combo of sundried tomatoes and artichokes. Must make soon!
I’m now officially obsessed with this! So full of veggies!
Great looking dip! I have a dream to go to Italy one day, too. I think it’ll be a while until I get there, but a girl can dream, right? 🙂
A very nice veggie or cracker dip. Blessings , Catherine
