This afternoon I had some time to play around in the kitchen and was in the mood for snacking. Here is a recipe remake that is sure to keep your tastebuds happy! I have always had a weakness for creamy dips and spreads at parties and barbecues so I decided to make one that I could feel good about eating. Typically this vegetable dip package calls for mayonaise and sour cream, but I used plain greek non-fat yogurt, which is only 60 calories in 1/2 cup and double the protein of regular yogurt! Plus, greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt, so the texture stays very close to regular spinach dip. I have been enjoying this dip with special k multi-grain crackers or celery sticks, but torn french or Hawaiian bread is another crowd pleaser.
- 1 pkg knorr vegetable dip mix
- 3 cups non fat greek yogurt, plain (I prefer Greek Gods)
- 1 can water chestnuts, finely chopped
- 1 pkg frozen spinach, thawed, all excess water squeezed out
Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
