Ingredients

  • 2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped green onion (9 medium)
  • Rye crackers, rice crackers or raw vegetables for dipping, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cook spinach as directed on package. Cool slightly; squeeze to drain well.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix sour cream, yogurt, tarragon, salt, mustard, pepper and garlic. Stir in cooked spinach, water chestnuts and green onions.
  • 3
    Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to blend flavors. Serve with crackers.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A hollowed-out bread loaf makes the perfect “bowl” for your dip. Cube the bread removed from the loaf, and use for dipping.
  • tip 2
    Make this lighter dip a nice alternative to your standard holiday appetizers. Stir about 1 cup of dried cranberries into the spinach dip; it’s fun, festive and adds a touch of sweetness and color.
