Who doesn’t love spinach dip? It’s healthy (sort of), always in season and a crowd pleaser. Plus, it’s dead easy to make and the ingredients are already likely to be in your fridge, so it’s a perfect appetizer for unexpected guests.
Here is my basic recipe for spinach dip. Feel free to play around with the seasonings as you like. Serve with whole-wheat crackers or pita chips. This will probably serve 4-8 people, but the recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.
Combine in a bowl:
- ½ cup spinach, sautéed and chopped
- 1 cup sour cream, plain yogurt and/or softened cream cheese
- 3 med. scallions, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ¼ tsp. hot sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ red pepper, diced (optional)
