As an appetizer ingredient, you have to feel bad for spinach. It must be hard to share the spotlight with artichokes in everyone’s favorite green dip. And while spinach is delicious on its own, spreading the raw, uncooked leafy greens on a cracker doesn’t exactly scream “party app.”

So to honor spinach on National Spinach Day, here are three scrumptious dishes that aren’t spinach artichoke dip

1. Spinach Balls


These spinach, grated Parmesan Cheese and garlic salt balls are easy to make, and even easier to eat. They save you a step by combining the crackers right into the dip, which is extremely considerate. We usually don’t encourage the crushing of crackers, but we’ll make the exception in this case. Crumble up our Mariner Biscuit Olive Oil and Sea Salt water crackers and mix in for sheer ball-shaped appetizer heaven.

2. Creamy Spinach Soup


This recipe is vegetarian-friendly, but even the meat-eaters will be tempted by this vibrant spinach soup. With double cream, nutmeg, and freshly grated lemon zest, there’s something to keep every spoon pleased. Keep this veggie-tastic party going by having plenty of CaPeachio’s Vegetable Medley crackers on the side.

3. Party Spinach Spread


Looking for a spread that’s quick to make, and quick to disappear into happy mouths? Spinach, fresh parsley, and chopped onion are pulsed together in a food processor to make party perfection. The author recommends wheat crackers to go with, so grab some CaPeachio’s Multigrain Wheats and get spread-happy.
