Greek yogurt spinach dip recipe

from SUNSET Magazine.

Time: 20 minutes. This savory spinach dip takes its flavor cues from spanakopita. Serve it with warm pita bread or crisp crudités.

Yield: 2 1/2 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)


  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1/4  cup  roughly chopped shallots
  • 4  green onions, chopped
  • 1  tablespoon  minced garlic
  • 12  ounces  spinach leaves
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  fresh lemon zest
  • 2  teaspoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  cup  Greek yogurt
  • 1/2  cup  finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh dill
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add shallots, onions, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 2 minutes.

2. Using a slotted spoon, scoop spinach into a food processor; pulse until roughly puréed, about 5 pulses. Add remaining ingredients except pepper, pulse once just to combine, then season to taste with pepper.

I am going to take out the olive oil and the feta cheese. I am using non fat plain greek yogurt. This should help lower that caloric intake. Will let you know how it tastes!
