Ingredients

  • One 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 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 1/2 cups spinach, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill 

  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 

  • Fresh dill (optional)

 

Directions

  • Spread the yogurt to 1/2-inch thickness onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels. Top the yogurt layer with additional paper towels. Allow the yogurt to dry for 5 minutes.

  • Using a rubber spatula, remove the yogurt from the paper towels and place in a food processor with the cheeses, sour cream, and garlic. Blend until smooth.

  • Scoop the blended yogurt into a medium serving bowl, and add the spinach, minced dill, and pepper. Cover the dip and refrigerate for 1 hour. If desired, garnish with fresh dill prior to serving.
