A healthier version of your classic spinach artichoke dip recipe! Perfect for any get-together or holiday and easily prepped ahead of time!


  • 12 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated 
  • 15oz can artichokes, drained and roughly chopped
  • 10oz frozen spinach, thaw and drain
  • scant lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • serving: crostini and veggies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Then bring a small cast iron skillet to medium high heat. Add olive oil, garlic and shallot. Move around pan until garlic is fragrant and shallot has softened, approx. 1-2 minutes.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl add cooked garlic and shallot, yogurt and mayo. Stir to combine. 
  3. Fold in parmesan cheese, artichokes, spinach, lemon zest, lemon juice, pepper and kosher salt. 
  4. Pour out into prepared 8×11 pan (or similar size). Top with remaining mozzarella cheese. 
  5. Place in oven, middle rack, uncovered for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Feel free to place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes if you want to brown a bit, just watch very carefully. 
  6. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  7. Serve with cut up veggies, pita bread, crackers or crostini


  • Make Ahead: you can easily make this ahead of time and stop at Step 4, cover with foil and place in the refrigerator until you want to bake – you might just need to cook a bit longer in the oven to account for it coming out of the fridge cold. 
  • Storage: store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
