One of my favorite things about the holidays are all of the appetizers! I’ll admit that I’m one of those people who’ll often skimp the main meal so I can fill up on all of the yummy appetizers! This creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip is a party staple. Our version is healthier than the traditional version, since we used Greek yogurt instead of the usual sour cream to decrease the fat and increased the protein. You can also have this ready to serve in only 30 minutes!!
