Green Spider Dip


I had to come up with a nifty name for this.

I had to.

As you might have figured out, it's almost Halloween, and it's time to have fun with your food.
Green Spider Dip

It's time for me to have fun with my food, OK?

I like to make appetizers, or finger food, or cocktail snacks or canape's or starters, or hors d'oeurves, I really don't care what you call them.   I just like to make them.

So, I was thinking the other day, and trying to come up with something fun, healthy and most important of all, YUMMY and adult appropriate.

The ladies I get together with on Friday's love Hummus, and we usually have at least one dish of hummus or sometimes more to share.  I did say we like Hummus.

At any rate, I got to thinking and I came up with this.

I made some Spicy Edamame Dip, and 'floated' it on top of some regular Hummus, piped a spider web onto it with some creme fraiche, but you can also use sour cream or greek yoghurt, and decorated the edge with a green olive spider.   I would have used a black olive, but the can I thought I had in the cupboard wasn't there. hmmmm
I guess I used it all up in a Tapenade.

I was in a hurry last night cause I'd just gotten back from the 'big city' and a fun shopping trip with a friend so I whipped this up in a hurry.
In retrospect, I think if I'd made some of my Roasted Pepper Hummus to go underneath the green it would have been even more fun, but now I've lots of hummus to eat, all by myself. 

I served it with some pita chips, and watched part of it disappear.    There were actually a lot of people there last night, and a lot of nibbles as well.  But I wanted to share this idea with you so you can run right out, grab some hummus and make some Spicy Edamame Dip and copy me
