A Nontraditional Spinach Dip

This can make a nice starter/appetizer like the traditional one but the spinach is not mixed with the yogurt and I’ve added some new ingredients that add to the intensity of the flavors. Also, I used turkey bacon instead of the regular one. I never had it before and heard the taste is awful! In comparison, nothing tastes like bacon but real bacon 😉 but actually, turkey bacon is pretty good if you taste it without comparing the two. For 4 servings which will make 4 small bowls, you will need the followings:

  • 1 bag (oz) fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dill, chopped
  • 2 or 3 slices turkey or applewood smoked bacon
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Place bacon in a single layer in an unheated skillet and cook on medium heat to your desired crispness. You should keep turning to make sure they’re crispy all around. friedBacon Then, drain on paper towels.
