Talking Creamy Feta-Spinach Dip

Serve this yummy dip with cut-up vegetables. In Phase 2, you can serve it with WW pita chips or toasted slices of WW baguette, too.

Creamy Feta-Spinach Dip
From Cooking Light

We've updated the classic spinach dip by adding tangy feta and omitting the artichokes and much of the fat.

1 (8-ounce) carton plain low-fat yogurt
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 1/2 cups finely chopped spinach
1 tablespoon minced fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Fresh Dill (optional)

Spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels, and let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into the bowl of a food processor using a rubber spatula. Add the cheeses, sour cream, and garlic, and process until smooth, scraping sides of bowl once. Spoon yogurt mixture into a medium bowl, and stir in the spinach, minced dill, and pepper. Cover and chill. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired.

Yield: 2 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)
