Arugula and Artichoke Dip

Everyone loves to dig their chips into spinach and artichoke dip, especially when it is kept warm inside the crock of a slow cooker.  Of course, this recipe substitutes peppery arugula in place of spinach for something that is not only more refined, but more flavorful as well.

1 small red onion, diced
2 packed cups arugula leaves
16 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
2 (8-ounce) bricks cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese (may use Parmesan)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place onion in a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat and sauté until lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes.  (You can also do this right in the crock of many modern slow cookers by using the cooker’s browning function.)

Place caramelized onion in a slow cooker and cover with remaining ingredients, folding to combine.

Set the cooker to LOW, cover, and let cook 2 hours, or until hot and bubbly.

Stir well and set cooker to WARM before serving right out of the cooker.  If dip is too thick, or thickens over time, thin out with a few tablespoons of milk.

Cut the Fat 
Reduced-fat cream cheese and reduced-fat mayonnaise can be used in place of the full-fat varieties listed in the Shopping List, with almost no difference in flavor or texture.
