Notes

We all know spinach is a power food. It's full of potassium, calcium, Vitamin C, and Bs, and loads of fiber. Plus it makes a killer dip, if you watch the fat and sodium connect of the additions. This is a creamy, delicious dip that is also lower in fat than traditional recipes, but without losing any of the flavor.
