Using frozen creamed spinach and prepped items from the salad bar makes this an economical version of the classic dip. It can be made 1 day in advance. Serve with pita chips or thin slices of baguette.

Servings: 2
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 6-ounce jar artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1 12-ounce package frozen creamed spinach, defrosted
  • 1 scallion, white and light-green parts finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper (cut from peppers on the salad bar)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper (cut from peppers on the salad bar)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (from the salad bar)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, artichoke hearts, defrosted creamed spinach, scallion, bell peppers and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl; mix thoroughly and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
