I bought a similar spread at the grocery store a while back, and I thought that I could do it better and cheaper myself. You can use imitation crab, instead of the real thing if you like. I use cooked and frozen artichoke hearts or you can buy fresh artichokes, and cook the hearts up yourself.

This was excellent. I added some Old Bay per other reviwers' suggestions but I tasted the dip before I added the Old Bay and it tasted great. This one will be used again and again. Read More
