This weeks Five Ingredient Friday recipe is my favorite take on Spinach dip….like ever…EVER!
Is it the creamy Greek Yogurt? The tang from the Feta crumbles? The bite from the garlic? The nutty crunch from the walnuts on top? I think it is the perfect combination of all the ingredients that make this dip a favorite of mine.
I’ve made this dip countless times, but it was only after taking a trip to St. Louis a few weeks ago to visit my best friend and going to Cafe Natasha that I added the walnuts and found that it was the perfect ‘something’ that made this dish come together.
I also added a dash of olive oil around the edge of the bowl like they had when it was served, and found that I did not like it at all, so i’m leaving it out of the recipe.
TGIF, no, really! Thank.God.It’s.Friday folks! After a long and productive week at work I’m looking forward to the weekend and a little down time (although it seems we are constantly busy and I’m behind with things as basic as folding laundry…I may or may not have 5 loads of laundry calling my name)… can you relate?
Besides tasting totally awesome, this dip takes 5 minutes to prepare! 5 minutes, that’s it! Just combine the yogurt, spinach and garlic, top with feta and walnuts and then serve, that’s it! VIOLA!
Even though it’s been THAT kind of week, I’m really looking forward to making this dip again and grabbing some pita chips and digging in! Happy weekend, and definitely stay tuned for some very exciting things here on The Sweet Phi blog next week!
- 1 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
- 1 Cup Frozen chopped spinach drained and dried
- 1/2 Cup Feta Crumbles
- 1/4 Cup Walnut pieces
- 2 garlic cloves crushed
- 1 tsp Salt
- Start by defrosting the frozen spinach, drain all the liquid and pat dry with a paper towel.
- In a bowl stir together the Greek Yogurt, spinach, garlic and salt, stir until combined. Spread onto a plate and top with feta crumbles and walnut pieces on top.
Great dip! I subbed pecans as I was out of walnuts, roasted garlic for crushed garlic and Cajun seasoning instead of salt. Excellent dinner for me with chips in the heat of the summer! Will make this again & maybe even share some.
Thank you so much for commenting and letting me know how you liked it, I’m so glad you made it, and those substitutions sound delicious!!
What do you serve it with? Pita bread? Looks yum!
I like to serve this with pita bread or pita chips or tortilla chips – anything for dipping really 🙂 Thank you so much for the comment!

Ahhhhh I totally left for my trip this weekend with so much laundry still to do! I should tackle it when I get home, but I think I’d rather distract myself with this dip. It looks outstanding!
Haha, oh Erin, I’m so glad you commented and it’s not only me! I always tell myself I’ll do it next week… lol, then this ginormous pile happens! Have fun on your trip, can’t wait to hear all about it, sounds super exciting.
