Spicy Sautéed Spinach Dip
I admit, I love spinach dip, but I’m not a big fan of the heavy mayonnaise-based recipes. So when I came across this Spicy Sautéed Spinach Dip recipe on Dip Genius, I was beyond excited to see that the base was Greek yogurt. Suddenly, an unhealthy special-occasion indulgence is transformed into a high-protein weekday treat.
The recipe is super simple, too: a few chops, a dash of this and that, and voila!
This is definitely one of those recipes you’ll “need to test” as you make it to ensure it’s just-so. Ok, that’s a lie. I’m just giving you the green light to indulge a bit, because once your party guests or family get their hands on it… it will go fast!
- Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Dips packet
- Nonfat Greek yogurt
- Olive oil
- Minced garlic
- Scallions, thinly sliced, white and dark green parts separated
- Chopped frozen spinach, thawed
- Red pepper flakes
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- In a large pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and white and light green parts of the scallions and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add spinach and sauté another 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in red pepper flakes and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
- Mix contents of dip packet with yogurt. Add spinach mixture and dark green parts of the scallions. Stir well to combine. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to thicken.

As I was making the recipe today, I remembered that I had some naan flatbread in the pantry. Oh, my word. I’m telling you, this is the perfect compliment to this Spicy Sautéed Spinach Dip.
After you’ve mixed your dip ingredients together, pop it in the fridge to chill for a while. Then tend to your flatbread:
You simply slice the flatbread into strips and triangles, spritz with olive oil, and bake at 425 degrees until slightly brown. (If you want to get fancy, you could also throw a bit of garlic salt on the pieces before popping them in the oven.)
Super simple. Crazy delicious. The combination of the outer crunch and inner softness of the flatbread go smashingly with this cool and creamy dip. Of course, that’s the thing about this spicy spinach dip—it tastes amazing on pretty much anything.
