Hey ya’ll. I’m Jessie from Living Mostly Meatless and I’m happy to be here to help Rachel today.

Today I’m bringing you Spinach Dip. I grew up in Michigan on a lake so whenever I get a little dose of Vitamin D, I crave spinach dip because that was always our “boat snack.” So last week, when it was almost 60 degrees in Chicago and I went for a really long walk, that craving kicked in.

I looked at my recipe, and after looking at the ingredients, I knew that there was no way I could feel good about serving a giant dish full sour cream and mayonnaise. I started playing around with it and settled on a mixture of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and Miracle Whip.

Rest assured that it was the favorite dish of our Superbowl Party, and no fan complained. I don’t think I could even tell the difference. I hope you enjoy it!
