Reduced < Guilt Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

This stuff is SO, SO GOOD, considering it's a much lighter, lower-calorie version of deliciously decadent spinach dip. Actually, it's more like traditional spinach dip's cooler, hipper Millenial cousin, what with the addition of the kale and the replacement of sour cream with Greek yogurt. It's a tasty, more-nutritious makeover of good old-fashioned spinach dip, and I am grateful. This is one of those unique, satisfying TJ's products that, once you've discovered it, you feel compelled to make part of your regular grocery rotation.
Versatility is the name of Reduced < Guilt Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip's game; its uses are seemingly endless. Many weekdays I'll top Triscuit crackers (or the TJ's equivalent) with it for lunch. Baby carrots and celery are delicious accompaniments for it as well, as are thick, salty potato chips. Mmmm.
It also works very respectably as a sandwich spread or as a topping for sliced baguette.
Two tablespoons will net you 30 calories and an impressive 20% of your Vitamin A for the day, as well as a gram each of fiber and protein. Not too shabby!
I'd like to know if I'm getting any live and active cultures from the Greek yogurt, but the label doesn't tell me, and I'm currently feeling too lazy to call the company and ask. So for now, this will remain one of life's great mysteries.
Happy dipping!
