What To Serve with Asparagus Dip

Asparagus dip pairs wonderfully with a variety of options, depending on what you’re looking for:

Classic Dippers:

  • Crackers: Always a reliable choice. Go for sturdy options that can handle the creamy texture, like wheat thins or water crackers.
  • Pita Bread: The soft, pillowy texture of pita bread is a great contrast to the smooth dip. You can cut it into triangles for easy scooping.
  • Tortilla Chips: Opt for sturdy tortilla chips to avoid them getting soggy. If you prefer a healthier option, baked whole wheat tortilla chips work well.

Veggie Platter:

  • Raw Vegetables: For a lighter option, serve the dip with a platter of colorful raw vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, celery, and sugar snap peas.
  • Blanched Vegetables: For a slightly softer texture, blanch vegetables like broccoli florets, asparagus spears, or green beans.

Unique Pairings:

  • Crudités Platter: Elevate your spread with a platter of crudités, which are fancy cut raw vegetables like cucumber slices, radishes, and fennel.
  • Rice Cakes: A healthy and low-carb option, rice cakes offer a neutral flavor that lets the asparagus dip shine.

How to Store Leftover Asparagus Dip

To keep your leftover asparagus dip fresh and delicious, follow these simple storage tips:

  1. Transfer to Airtight Container: Leftover dip should never be left sitting out in the open container. Scoop the dip into an airtight container, like a sealed plastic container or a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. This will prevent air exposure which can cause spoilage and affect flavor.
  2. Refrigerate Promptly: Don’t let the dip linger at room temperature for extended periods. Refrigerate leftover asparagus dip within 2 hours of serving. This helps slow down bacterial growth and keeps your dip safe to eat.
  3. Maximize Shelf Life: Properly stored leftover asparagus dip will typically last for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 14 ounces asparagus
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons onion minced
  • cups Parmesan cheese grated


  • Boil a pot of water. While it’s heating to boiling, clean up the end of the asparagus (I cut them off) and then boil them for 3 minutes.
  • Drain them and put them in a cold water bath.
  • In a blender, mix the Parmesan cheese, garlic clove, onion and softened cream cheese together until blended.
  • Add the asparagus and pulse a few times to mix that in. We actually really blended it in, just because I love the green color.
  • Put the asparagus dip into a heat proof dish and sprinkle with some more Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbly and the top is slightly browned.

  1. Weirdly enough, I’ve never even thought of making asparagus into a dip. Dipping it into things, yes. I’ll have to give it a try… nice choice.

  2. This recipe sounds just perfect for spring – the asparagus is so cheap and fresh that I can’t help but buy a couple of bunches every time I’m at the store, so even though most of the time we just throw it on the grill and call it a day, I’m still always on the lookout for interesting new dishes I can prepare. Love it!

    1. I do the same thing Isabelle, at any given night I can just grab a bunch and make it. It’s my love affair with asparagus and also avocado. It’s crazy. Thanks for the sweet words.

  3. Nicole – First i want to say Thank you for such an awesome write up, you were so kind. Your dip looks amazing, this is one of my favorites and i make it all the time. Next time i will add some more garlic 🙂 Also your pictures are fantastic!

    1. Ewa, sorry it took so long to respond. I had so much fun on your blog. This recipe has become an all time favorite at our house. I just love how delicious it is, and sort of addicting. Thank you so much!

    1. Right? Me either. When I saw it on her blog, I was like… yep that’s it. That’s the one I am doing. No questions. I’m not sorry either. We are all kinda addicted now. haha Thanks Lesa!

  4. We’re big garlic fans too, my husband usually triples the amount of garlic in recipes. The color on this dip is incredible, and we love anything with asparagus. I’ll have to keep this in mind the next time I whip up a dip.

    1. We’ve made it a few more times adding different ingredients but we also take the garlic up a notch. We’ve decided 3 cloves is perfect. 🙂 hahha I told you we’re addicted!

    1. I doubt it, if you’d like to serve it chilled, I think it would be ok. The only thing I would recommend is make sure if you serve it cold, that whatever you are serving to dip in it, is sturdy, since I don’t think the dip will soften as much. Do let us know!

    1. Lisa, honestly I have never done it a day ahead, but you know, I can’t really see why it couldn’t be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. Let me know how it works out.

  5. My blender had a very hard time mixing such a thick spread. I had to add a tablespoon of water. Then the dip was a little bit more liquid. Also much lighter green than your picture. Tasted good !
