Dips and spreads are an outstanding way to spice up a party, dinner table or coffee table. The bold flavors, creamy textures, and endless choices draw family and friends together for fun and conversation. At the same time, they are typically loaded with hidden calories, abundant sodium and saturated fat that are too difficult to resist and track. To prove that dips and spreads can be fun and flavor rich, we’ve chosen the top dips and spreads from SparkRecipes that substitute unhealthy ingredients with nutritional alternatives. Each recipe can serve as a standalone dip or as a sandwich spread.
