Creamy Feta and Spinach Dip
This creamy, low fat dip goes nicely with raw vegetables or baked pita chips.
♥ By draining the low fat yogurt, you can make a creamy cheese that can be the base of many dips.
♥ Low fat cream cheese and sour cream can be substituted with little detection because they simply add a creamy texture.
♥ Use fresh herbs whenever possible to enhance flavors.
