chopped fresh spinach
ground dry mustard
We love this recipe. Always keep some in the fridge. It is great as a dip but also as a dressing in souvlaki pitas (instead of tzatziki) or on burgers.
We use 1/2 cup of mayo instead of the full cup and add 1/2 cup of yogurt (total of 1 1/2 cups of yogurt). We prefer the consistency and the flavours stand out more with yogurt than mayo.
Good flavor, but DO NOT make this in a food processor. It becomes too watery. I'm not sure how I'll thicken this up...
EDIT - added a small container of sour cream to thicken, and it definitely helped -- both with flavor and consistency. I hadn't realized before just how salty this was by the recipe. Much better now.
Yum! Huge hit! I used fat free yogurt, 1 10-oz package of extremely well-thawed and well-drained frozen spinach that I ran the knife through just to make sure there weren't any big pieces, 1 tsp of Italian seasoning instead of opening 3 separate containers for oregano, basil and parsley, garlic powder instead of garlic salt and Old Bay instead of Lawry's seasoning salt (what I had on hand). Delicious and not too salty for us...because of the Old Bay??
This is tasty and nutritious. Can't beat that. I used low-fat yogurt and mayo. I accidentally changed the spice measurement from 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon and I'm glad I did. I added onion powder and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I used one teaspoon of season salt to cut back on the salt and it was still pretty noticeable. I added a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper that really was great with it but it still could have used some water-chestnuts. I used about a cup of left-over steamed spinach and could have used more. Over all, very good stuff though. It's good to know that yogurt can be used in place of its less nutritious counterparts.
So easy and delicious! This tastes creamy and bright without the bitter taste you get with the frozen spinach type dips. I used baby spinach leaves, and and used non-fat yogurt. It's just really really good!
Super Bowl Sunday and I had a box of frozen spinach & took to the all recipes! Took everyones reviews into consideration on this recipe - cut way back on the mayo & added little sour cream - cut back on the seasoning salt & picked up differnce with the Old Bay, went with the fronzen spinach because had that on hand. Last went light on garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. Also added little ground pepper & a little grated Parmesan. With everyones helpful reviews - I think this creation is worth 5 stars! Will be a yummy hit at the big game!
I don't usually like plain yogurt, but this was a good use for it! I omitted all of the salt because people said it was too salty, added (1/3 cup?) shredded parmesan cheese and diced onions, and used around 3 cups of fresh chopped spinach instead of 1. Served with Hawaiian bread for the sweet contrast! Will use again.
This was a great recipe. I made a double batch for a cookout and people loved it. I did do less mayo and more yogurt, but I also added artichoke hearts and chopped water chestnuts. Also instead of the herbs suggested, I added a pack of onion soup mix...Yummy!
