Hot Kale & Artichoke Dip Recipe

This Hot Kale & Artichoke Dip Recipe is simple, straight-forward, and uses fat-free Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. The nutrition is boosted by using fresh kale (spinach would work great too) – and any kale will work….just give it a rough chop!

I use canned artichokes, drain them, and give those a rough chop too. Add a squeeze of lemon. It cuts through the thickness, adds a tang, and a punch of a “bright” factor. Full of flavor, easy to make, and perfect as a dip for your favorite vegetable slices.
