SPINACH YOGURT DIP

When people think spinach dip they usually think of the quite fatty but "oh so tasty" spinach and artichoke dip. Although I have to say I do love the full fat cheesy spinach dip, I like to lighten up a dip recipe once in a while using healthy yogurt. Cut up some colourful, cold and crisp veggie sticks and you're off to the races with a wonderful party or meal starter. Give this a try it was a real hit at my house!

Makes about 3 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (full fat or half fat)
  • 1 cup light mayo
  • 2 tsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp each: dried basil, oregano, dry mustard and garlic salt
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

In a medium bowl, combine the chopped fresh spinach, plain yogurt, mayo, parsley, dried basil, dried oregano, dry mustard, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Make sure all of the ingredients are well combined. Place the dip into the refrigerator until fully chilled. Serve along side tons of veggie sticks.

Cook's note: I strongly recommend not using the food processor for this. This is one of the few dips that I really don't use the mixer. It has a tendency to create a watery dip for this particular recipe.
