I freaking love dip. Any kind of dip. Buffalo chicken dip. French onion dip. Caramel dip. QUESO DIP. A dip-themed party is my kind of party. Today I bring to you a very delicious and healthy-ish dip— Greek Spinach Artichoke Dip! Now this dip is served cold, unlike regular spinach artichoke dip. I have nothing against warming it up but I prefer it chilled! This dip is perrrrfect for a picnic, a lake day, or chillin at home trying to figure out what to eat for lunch. You can just eat dip for lunch. It’s fine. Also this dip has so much spinach in it that you are BASICALLY eating a salad.
What makes the dip Greek? Kalamata olives, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and oregano, all of which are commonly found in a standard Greek salad. There are no cucumbers in the dip but I like to eat it WITH cucumbers to get the full Greek flaves.
This Greek Spinach Artichoke Dip has a greek yogurt and mayo base. Omg even the yogurt is greek! I do a little more greek yogurt than mayo to keep it lighter. The garlic is minced and the rest of the ingredients are chopped up and then everything is mixed together. A note about the spinach—YOU GOTTA SQUEEZE YOUR SPINACH! I use a cheesecloth to squeeze the heck outta my spinach but you could also use a kitchen towel. Or a mesh strainer and a spatula—press the spinach down against the mesh with the spatula to get the liquid out. So much liquid will come out. And we don’t want that in our dip.
What vehicles should you use to get big scoopfuls of this delicious dip into your mouth hole? As I said before, I like cucumbers, plus carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, pita bread or pita chips, crackers (duh), or crostini.Print
