Greek Spinach Dip

Greek Spinach Dip

Here’s a healthy spinach dip that takes its flavor cues from the yummy Greek spinach pie, also known as Spanakopita. It’s easy to make and goes well with anything, particularly pita bread or chips. The dip is a little on the sour side from the dill and Greek yogurt, but those that know what to expect should like it well.

So if you’re looking for a healthy dip you won’t feel guilty snacking on, look no further.

Greek Spinach Dip

I’ve been pining for spinach tacos for over three years now since first having it in North Carolina but they seem to be a rarity in Florida. So I heated up this dip and threw it into hard shell tacos for a quick Sunday dinner of Greek spinach tacos, a cross-cultural meal that worked out well.

For more fun dips, try out slow cooker spinach and artichoke dip, buffalo chicken dip, this fresh salsa fresca, or a cream cheese sausage dip.
