This spinach dip with water chestnuts is a cold creamy dip made with healthy Greek yogurt, frozen spinach, and chopped water chestnuts for a little bit of crunch. It’s so good, you’ll want to eat it every day!

When I was a kid, my mom and I used to celebrate New Year’s Eve by staying in and eating junk food. Cake, candy, chips and dip. It was the one night a year that she let me go absolutely hog wild and eat whatever the heck I wanted.

One thing that I ALWAYS wanted was a spinach dip sold at the deli counter of our local grocery store. It was a cold, creamy delicious dip made with water chestnuts, and we would eat it with water crackers, and for some reason I just could not get enough of it.

I eventually aged out of our NYE tradition, and I moved away from my hometown, but I can still have spinach dip whenever I want it and I know that it’s what I’ll be making this New Year’s Eve.
