Top 3 Dips to Share

Top 3 Dips to Share

I love a relaxed evening with friends – the impromptu sort when you decide you really need a catch-up, so you throw a few nibbles together and chill a bottle of fizz.

One of the best sharing foods is dip.

I like to serve with a range of crudité (how virtuous we feel eating carrot and cucumber sticks!), breadsticks and some warm pitta triangles.
