This low fat spinach dip makes a terrific appetizer. Serve with a platter of fresh vegetables or with some baked chips or breadsticks. Use frozen chopped spinach if you prefer. You can spice it up a little by adding a dash of hot sauce.

  • 1 cup plain fat-free yogurt, drained of excess water
  • 4 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
