Spinach-Parmesan Multi-Purpose Spread

I've had a few people ask me if I eat everything I put on my blog. The short answer is: no. With the endless parade of cookies, pies, cakes and desserts of all kind that find their way to Espresso and Cream, it would be an amazing feat if I were able to. Instead, most of my sweet treats get packed up and shipped off or taken with me to work. Thus far, none of my coworkers have complained.

I love making desserts, but it's the savory dishes I consume every day that I am most passionate about, though I post these recipes less frequently because they are somewhat second nature, rarely even involving a recipe. But when I realized how much I was using this spread, I thought it was time to whip out my measuring cups and really find out what I was putting in my Spinach-Parmesan Multi-Purpose Spread.

I find endlessly useful and super delicious. Sandwich spread? Check. Salad dressing? Check. Chip and veggie dip? Check and check. Like I said, it's so incredibly versatile. A little bit salty, creamy, and even a bit healthy (hello spinach!) it stores well when tightly covered in the refrigerator.

Spinach-Parmesan Multi-Purpose Spread
*3/4 cup olive oil
*1 cup tightly-packed spinach
*2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
*2 Tbsp. dried Italian herb mixture
*1/4 c. sour cream
*3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

*Add all the above ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
*Serve atop toast for a sandwich spread, as a dip for veggies, or in place of your favorite salad dressing.

Happy Cooking!
