Healthier Dip

I have been on the lookout for a healthier dip to serve with chips or a vegetable tray. We really like my version of ranch dip (check my archives for that one), but I saw a container of dip made with yogurt at Walmart and decided to search my obsessively-huge files of recipe clippings. Never fear...there it was, a clipping from some magazine from years ago. Hope all the ingredients are still available in stores!

Healthier Dip
2 C yogurt (plain, lowfat)
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed
1/3 C minced onion (think I'll use green onions)
1 envelope Lipton Vegetable Recipe Soup Mix
raw vegetables or chips

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Place in middle of chips or raw vegetables for dipping.


  1. What should be thawed and drained?

  2. OOPS! frozen spinach. Sorry 'bout that!

  3. yum! I've substituted yogurt in my favorite herb dip. It's on my blog along with a Texas Caviar that is super good with crackers or chips.

  4. Hi Marcia,
    I just love using yogurt as a base for this dip, I will try this soon. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and please come back!
