Ways to Use It
The options are endless but here are a few ideas to get you started. Note: I recommend eating this sauce within 24 hours for the best and freshest flavor.
Dip: Red bell peppers + this sauce = AMAZING. I’ve also dipped carrots, tortilla chips, duck, shrimp, steak and chicken in this glorious sauce. All were delicious!
Spread: Spread this sauce on toast and top with tomatoes for a new version of avocado toast. This sauce is also awesome as a spread on sandwiches, wraps and burritos.
Sauce: Use this delicious green goodness as a sauce for noodles or drizzled over rice/burrito bowls.
A Good Way to Hide Spinach
Spinach is one of those incredibly healthy foods that can get incredibly boring or maybe you have a picky eater. Personally, I can only eat so many spinach salads. So, This is one creative way to incorporate more spinach into your diet. The amount of spinach that is squeezed into this sauce is actually shocking!

What It Tastes Like
It is rich and creamy with a hint of tang. You can’t taste the spinach at all. In fact, when others tried this sauce, they guessed it was made with a bunch of herbs and were shocked to know how much spinach was actually in it.
Which Greek Yogurt to Use
I always recommend using full-fat plain Greek yogurt. The flavor and creaminess of full-fat Greek yogurt can’t be beat and it has a higher nutritional value than other fat-free options.
Which Kitchen Tools to Use
I use a mini food processor in this recipe. However, a standard sized food processor, bullet or blender will also get the job done. Even an immersion blender will work but in my experience can get messy if you aren’t careful!
