Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Artichoke and Spinach Dip, a healthy recipe from Dr. Gourmet with 2 points in your Mediterranean diet score

I have tried this dip at a few of the chain restaurants and have tasted a number of versions at parties. The problem that I have is that it is always made with way too much mayonnaise. This gives those recipes a greasy feel and the flavor is overly sweet.


For folks with acid reflux those recipes are going to contain far too much fat, and it's possible that greasiness might provoke heartburn. Using the reduced fat cream cheese along with the naturally low fat mozzarella gives this recipe a rich creaminess with a lot less fat.

Here's the recipe for Artichoke and Spinach Dip without the pictures.
