Spinach Feta Dip

Another one from LaaLoosh!  It did not look very pretty, so I had to explain to people what it was so they were not scared.  It ended up being a huge hit!  I served this with a veggie platter, tortilla chips and crackers.

Spinach Feta Dip
Adapted from LaaLoosh

  • 4 1/2 cups spinach ( fresh & chopped)
  • ¼  cup green onions (chopped)
  • ½ cup reduced fat cream cheese
  • ½ cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup crumbled fat free feta cheese ( didn’t really measure, I used about ½ container)
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

1.      In a medium skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil.  Once hot, add spinach and toss for a few minutes or until the leaves just begin to wilt.
2.      Place spinach, green onions, cream cheese, garlic, sour cream, feta cheese, crushed red pepper, chives, lemon juice in a blender; puree. Taste dip and add salt and pepper to taste. Empty dip into a serving bow and dig in!
