Asiago Cheese PDO | Spinach Dip



When it comes to family get-togethers, pot lucks or special occasions, my go-to dish is spinach dip. As a cheese lover, I can never pass up the opportunity to indulge in ooey gooey cheese dishes and it's quite easy to make ahead of time. When I had the opportunity to sample Asiago Fresh Cheese Pdo, I immediately hopped on the bandwagon and thought it would be the perfect afternoon snack for all those recovering from food comas from our Thanksgiving dinner the night before.

With a turducken feast on Sunday night, Monday was all about taking it easy and lounging around. The spinach dip was prepped while the turducken was roasting and all that was left to do was to grate the Asiago Fresh Cheese Pdo over top and incorporate into the spinach mixture.


This authentic Asiago cheese is a healthy, wholesome product with a delicious and unmistakable flavour which also carries the designation Pdo known as Protected Designation of Origin. Unsure as to what that means? It indicates that the product’s qualities come principally from the geographical environment in which it is made, including natural and human factors, and that its production, processing and preparation take place exclusively in the area of origin. This means that only cheese which is produced, matured, packaged and distributed in compliance with the Asiago Pdo Cheese Production Regulations is "Asiago Cheese". All the rest is just "cheese".
