Who doesn't love spinach and artichoke dip? It's frequently the first thing to be demolished at a potluck, and it seems like it's so healthy (spinach! artichokes!) But this tasty dip is treacherous for your waistline. Made with full-fat products, a 1/4 cup serving can have more than 200 calories.
Enter Ellie Krieger's recipe. It uses lower fat dairy products and has a fraction of the calories of the original. It's super easy to make. I subbed swiss cheese for the mozzarella since that was what I had on hand, though I used less because it was full fat. Cathy at The Tortefeasor selected this one for us, and it's a winner! I served it with baby carrots and it was wonderful. I missed the crunch of water chestnuts and I think I should have added a bit more salt. I didn't miss the creaminess of the full fat ingredients.
