Creamy Spinach Dip

January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (129 votes)

Try this light spinach dip made healthier with reduced-fat cream cheese, nonfat yogurt and low-fat cottage cheese instead of full-fat cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream. It will save you a whopping 84 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving when compared to traditional versions. Serve it with pita chips and crunchy vegetables or spread it on a sandwich.



READER'S COMMENT:
"A wee bit oniony so will do about 1/2 the shallot next time. It does need a bit of something to round out the flavor, needs a bit of fat or something like that. I will try adding a tsp of low fat mayo or miracle whip the next time around...

A miss

My family dubbed it a miss. There were parts of the flavor profile that were good, but it was more of a miss than a hit. Shallot and chestnut too strong and it just sat in the bottom of my processor and wouldn't mix.

This recipe was absolutely delicious! Instead of a shallot I used green onion, I didn't use garlic like everybody else, and I used full fat cream cheese because the store was out of low-fat. I added a little bit of diced tomato to the food processor. I was skeptical about the cottage cheese, because I've never had it, but this recipe was delicious with it. I will definitely make this more often, but warning - it was hard to stop eating because it was so yummy!

I also used less shallot and added a clove of garlic. I didn't have any chives but the taste was still quite good. I used a handle blender as well and this was fine.

Might have been tasty without the shallot; it went uneaten after first bites. Way too much onion for what should have been a delicately flavored dip.
