Talking Cheesy Spinach-Artichoke Dip

This dip sounds really good! Have it with vegetables in Phase 1. When you move to Phase 2, you can have it with WW pita chips. Mm! Suggestions/Modifications are in red and in brackets.

Cheesy Spinach-Artichoke Dip

1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil [i.e. these are dried]
1 cup boiling water
1 (14-ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
1 (8-ounce) tub light cream cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) carton low-fat sour cream
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese [make sure this is real, with no additives]
3/4 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2.Combine sun-dried tomatoes and boiling water in a bowl; let stand for 1 hour or until soft.

3. Place artichokes and next 11 ingredients (through garlic) in a 3 1/2-quart electric slow cooker; stir well. Cover with lid; cook on low-heat setting 1 hour. Drain tomatoes; stir into dip. Cover and cook 1 hour. Serve warm

Yield: 5 1/4 cups dip (serving size: 1/4 cup dip)
