There are very few crowd pleasing appetizers that are easier to make then a hot and creamy dip. Present a bubbling dish of cheesy dip at any social gathering and you will have guests flocking like the seagulls in Finding Nemo shouting “Mine! Mine! Mine!”

This Creamy Cauliflower Dip is an absolute winner. SA is on a health kick at the moment and immediately declared “there is no way I’m touching that” when he came in the kitchen and saw me whipping the mayonnaise together. Fast forward 20 minutes and he was eating the dip by the spoonful with a sheepish look on his face.

This dip is a great dish to bring to a dinner or party as it can be made a day in advance, transported in a Tupperware container and then quickly heated in the oven before serving. It’s great served with crusty bread, crackers or a variety of veggies.
