Though store-bought hummus and salsa is almost always a good call, sometimes I’m looking for a little more than vacuum-sealed plastic containers filled with my favorite spreads. Yes, these go-to grocery store products may be as easy as taking them off the shelf and placing them in your refrigerator, but here’s a recipe that will have you buying ingredients next time you are at the store.
To expand your collection of global dips and spreads, I recommend adding this Italian Parmesan spread to the rotation. Though you can’t buy it in the grocery store, I promise this recipe is almost as easy as opening your favorite store-bought guac and will change the way you cater pregames for the rest of your college career.
