I’ve got a great dip to add to your New Year’s spread! I saw this over at Gina’s Skinny Recipes and although I added a lot more sour cream, cheese, and mayonnaise to the dip, it still ends up being much lighter than regular creamy dips. But who really cares about that, anyway? If it goes on a cracker, my calorie concerns fly out the window and I eat half the batch. I love dip! And this one is no exception.
Creamy Parmesan Spinach Dip
12 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed
1 bunch scallions, chopped
½ cup Parmigiano Reggiano
1 (16 z) tub light sour cream
½ cup light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Squeeze out as much water from the spinach as you can. Combine all ingredients in large bowl and stir until well mixed. If not serving immediately, remove from refrigerator 2 hours before serving.
*Veronica’s notes: all I could find is a 12 oz bag of spinach but I know most of you will only be able to find the 10 oz container. No worries, just use that and leave everything else the same. This dip will not suffer from being more creamy. :)
