TGIF...take 2

I hear that more than several of you are watching hoops on TV...March Madness playing out on the basketball court. This recipe is weekend three pointer, perfect for Our Green Table's TGIF mantra...Thank God It's Fresh! Easy to make and soooo much healthier than those pre-mixed "dips". This will give your health a high!

Hoop it up and have a great weekend!!

Creamy Spinach Dip

This creamy, high-fiber dip is great for a family or sports fan gathering or as an appetizer dish at a dinner party. Serve with raw vegetable pieces or chunks of crusty, whole grain bread.

1 1/2 cups cooked or canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained or 12 ounces nondairy sour cream
1/4 cup filtered water
3-4 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup fresh salsa
1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning (such as MSG-free Mrs. Dash) or vegetable dip mix without MSG and other additives
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, add in grated zest if you like
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mash beans and water together using a potato masher, food processor, or blender until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. 
Spoon the remaining dip into a dish. Cover and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.
To serve, scoop out into a pretty dish, bread bowl or hollowed out red or green cabbage.
