I've not much time to write today--it's Super Bowl Sunday. I don't know who's playing, but I don't want to miss any of the ads.


Here's an unusual (but tasty) dip I made for our visiting friends. It comes from the website www.myrecipes.com:


Greek Spinach Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped shallots
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 12 ounces spinach leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add shallots, onions, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 2 minutes.

2. Using a slotted spoon, scoop spinach into a food processor; pulse until roughly puréed, about 5 pulses. Add remaining ingredients except pepper, pulse once just to combine, then season to taste with pepper.
