dip dip we all love DIP!

this past weekend i decided to take a dip over to my parents so we could have something to munch on before our big easter feast of ham and greens that evening. i mean, who doesn't love a good dip? i wanted to try something new and {somewhat} healthy - so i took a peek at pinterest, of course, and this is what i found.. feta and spinach dip.
it screams creativity, don't ya think?

{i actually found this sitting in my car in the target parking lot - quickly made my list - and then ventured inside. i actually do this quite often - and believe it or not, i'm usually quite the planner. i often find the best recipes this way though, including this one!}

creamy feta spinach dip

1-8oz container of plain low-fat yogurt  i used greek
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese  i used the entire 4oz pkg
1/4 cup low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
1-1/2 cups finely chopped spinach
1 tbsp minced fresh dill
1/8 tsp black pepper
fresh dill  optional, and i did not use

spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy duty paper towels - spread to 1/2 inch thickness. cover with additional paper towels & let stand five minutes. scrape into food processor using rubber spatula. (yes, i thought this part was a bit on the odd side but i think it just drains the liquid out of the yogurt - yum.)

add the cheeses, sour cream, and garlic. mix until smooth. spoon yogurt mixture in a medium bowl, and stir in the spinach, minced dill, and pepper. cover and chill.

garnish with fresh dill, if desired, and serve with whatever your heart desires. :) i went with snack factory pretzel crisps. have you tried these? you must rush to the store right now if you haven't!

so there you have it! this dip is a must try. i'm a sucker for any dip & this goes to the top of my list!
