Spinach Dip

by Erin

This creamy spinach dip is not only easy to throw together, but also delicious – made with water chestnuts and onion mixed in for some crunch.

Ready for all the college football conference championship games tomorrow? After a rough week for the Buckeyes in spite of the win over Michigan I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the Big Ten game. I suppose the show must go on in spite of the tragic loss of Kosta Karageorge. My thoughts are with his family, biological and Buckeye-family.

With college football season nearing it’s end and pro football still going strong, dips and other snacky foods are in high demand. How about this creamy spinach dip which requires not cooking at all. Just mix and serve! Would be great served in a big bread bowl.

    I’ve never made this because we don’t do mayo, can’t believe I’ve never thought to sub Greek yogurt, thanks!
