A light spinach dip


I have many vices but one that always shows its ugly face is my love for Spinach dip… the plus side I know how to google and have found a light version of the infamous spinach dip. Let me know what you think.


  • 1 small shallot, peeled
  • 1 5-ounce can water chestnuts, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese, (Neufchâtel)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 6 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Pulse shallot and water chestnuts in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add cream cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper and pulse until just combined. Add spinach and chives and pulse until incorporated.
