Lighter Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

Lighter Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

I learned something the hard way yesterday. I made this spinach artichoke hummus (took all the step by step photos), only to learn after all said and done that apparently it’s not my thing. It’s true that you just never know until you try it. I think my heart was just set on something that tasted similar to a cheesy spinach artichoke dip (and even though I added a little bit of parmesan) it just ended up tasting like an oddly textured, slightly off flavored hummus. So, I tossed that out and started with this. This, it’s definitely my thing! I ate nearly half of it in one sitting. My kids loved it too, which made my life easier because they ate plenty of veggies. I even found myself coming back for a midnight snack. With that I can only imagine how much of my veggie intake I got for the day, and I wasn’t even intending to eat all those veggies. A great dip can make you do crazy things I guess.
