Worst: Dips

Dips are one of the more insidious choices on the appetizer table. You don't know what's in them (that healthy-sounding spinach dip may be heavy with cheese), and it's easy to just keep dipping away. The calories, saturated fat, and sodium lurking in creamy dips (and the crackers and chips dipped in them) adds up. Choose hummus or salsa instead, and use fresh veggies as dippers. Better yet, make our all-time favorite appetizer, the Spinach-and-Artichoke Dip you see here.
