Yogurt Spinach Dip/spread/meal/salad

Submitted by: ARYJOONI

Introduction

I know not many people like plain yogurt sweetened or used as part of a meal but I've eaten varieties of this since I was a kid along with my food or as a meal and it's GREAT and very healthy. So, give it shot and make changes as required to make it better for you, but definitely try it. I've included some alternatives to make it better and more complete as well but the nutrition infor is for the basic recipe.

Ingredients

    -0.5 cup cooked spinach
    -0.5 cup cucumber chopped small
    -1 cup low fat plain yogurt (Greek yogurt is even better!
    -dash of salf
    -dash of pepper
    -dash of garlic powder


    You can make this without the cucumber if you'd like and it will be "close" to spinach dip. cucumbers give it a nice crunch which I love.

    so here are the healthy alternatives that can change the taste a lot.
    If I'm eating this as a light meal I add 0.5 ounce (about 7 halves) of chopped walnuts to it.
    If I want to give it a hint of sweetness I add a table spoon of Raisins to it
    If you like green onions adding a tiny bit of thinly shredded green onions (like 2 tsps) to it makes it taste good too.



Directions

Mix all ingredients in a bow and eat it by it self or as a side or use as a spread on crackers. You can just refrigerate left over and use later.

if you don't like the basic recipe definitely try it with walnuts and raisins!
Also you can play around with more yogurt or more spinach depending on what you like.

    I like your variations and will have to try them! I've only had it as a cold salad with either cucumber or lettuce. - 7/27/09

  • Got in the cream cheese, so I'd make this but without the artichoke - but DH has been using the cheese.
    This evening - something tasty on my yummy wholewheat crackers - and I found this recipe.
    I'm away to make it, probably as is.
    My mouth is watering! - 8/3/10

  • I used a yellow pepper (had no cukes), and less yogurt, more spinach. I added a little cheese, cayenne, garlic, and sunflower seeds to add more texture and spice. It would have tasted good as written, but I was trying to make it more appealing to my BF! Oh, It's even better a day later! - 9/4/09

  • The only thing I did differently was add WAY WAY more spinach (because I am Popeye?) I think I did 4 cups of spinach in all? But it is SO good! Thanks! - 8/9/09
