Springing into dip

Rarely does a holiday go by that someone doesn't offer up a spinach dip. Be it a potluck or Christmas Day celebration, post-Thanksgiving appetizer party or Super Bowl pregame get-together: there is always a bowl of soft bread filled with creamy spinach dip. As spring began to shows signs of waking this year I realized it's been a few years since I've enjoyed a spinach dip indulgence. Where have all the spinach dips gone?

I took matters into my own hands and made a lightened up version, perfect for warmer weather.

Spring Spinach Dip
Makes a lot

2 cups plain Greek-style yogurt
2/3 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream
1 package Knorr Spring Vegetable Recipe Mix
14 ounce-can artichoke hearts, diced
10 ounce chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
5 ounce-can diced water chestnuts
1/4 cup each diced dill, radish, red onion, cilantro, and red pepper
1 shredded carrot
3 green onions, diced

Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl and chill at least 2 hours. Serve with bread or chips.
