This healthy spinach dip is the first to go at any party I bring it to. And no one knows it is healthy and absolutely everyone asks me for a recipe.  And hands down, it’s one of the easiest appetizers to make. Any time you are asked to bring an appie, think of my spinach dip. All you have to do is to thaw spinach overnight (or in a microwave if you forgot), sauté a few veggies, and stir. That’s it!

Healthy spinach dip is a reality. With twice more spinach (“hello”, superfood), 4 times less mayo (“goodbye”, saturated fat) and Greek yogurt (“yesss”, protein). And it tastes same creamy, decadent and flavourful as you know it because I used 1/4 cup mayo and that was plenty. So, so, so good!

People who do not eat healthy will be asking you for a recipe, I promise! And you know where to send them, right?!?

I used 1/4 cup of avocado oil mayo, that was plenty. Don’t skip mayo. Organic, Vegenaise or any mayo without canola oil is a healthy option.
