I feel like everyone has their own “It’s not Christmas unless I have this one thing…and this…and this….and this” list. To say that my list is better than yours probably does not need to be said but I mean, I am here so I’m going to do the best job I can to educate and enlighten you. Like a skinnier, prettier Buddha. Or a male version of Mother Theresa. With better hair. Duh.
My family ALWAYS made spinach dip. And for some reason, my mom made the best. It’s not a secret. People knew and they talked about it. The envy was so real. But truth be told, there was ZERO “special” ingredient or technique. I know. I watched. And sometimes, I made it. People couldn’t tell the difference. It was still delicious.
However, this year I decided to do what I do best and jazz. I jazzed it up. Honestly, I didn’t know how this would turn out. But, the “licked-clean” bowl from an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party stood as somewhat of a testament, I guess.
So, here we are. Blogging. About spinach and kale.
Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip
16 oz. Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Large Bag Spinach/Kale
Knorr’s Vegetable Dip Mix
2 Tablespoons Mayo
Green Onions, diced
In whatever way you prefer, steam the bag of spinach and kale. I have a double-boiler type device that is really quite nifty for these types of things. But, you probably have something fancier that makes you feel like Duchess Kate.
Mix the mayo and Greek yogurt together in a medium-sized bowl. I usually keep the mayo to a minimum because only racists like mayo. Jk. But really.
Mix in the Knorr’s Vegetable packet and green onions. I love green onions so, I typically use about a handful or more. But if you’re dumb or whatever, you can use less.
When the spinach and kale are so steamed they scream for your loving caress, mix in completely.
Honestly, this is so good and simple but so delicious. It is so perfect if you can let it chill in the fridge overnight before serving. The flavors cohabitate and just get oh so delightful. If not, an hour or so works just fine too.
I hope you try this and have the best Christmas week ever!
