Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1 1/4 cup (310 mL) thinly sliced onions or 
shallots
4 cups (1 L) coarsely chopped spinach
3/4 cup (180 mL) crumbled Canadian Blue Cheese
3/4 cup (180 mL) 5 % sour cream or 
plain yogurt
1/2 cup (125 mL) light mayonnaise
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
1 bag (7 oz/ 210 g) of kettle potato chips or 
Lavash Flax Seed Crackers

Preparation

In large skillet melt butter over medium heat; add onions and cook stirring frequently for 5 min or until onions are tender. Cover; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 min or until golden brown. Increase heat to medium; add spinach and stir 2 to 3 min or until wilted; remove from heat.

In medium bowl, combine cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise; mash with back of wooden spoon until cheese pieces are to desired consistency. Stir in onion mixture, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate to allow flavours to blend for 1 hr or up to 1 day.

Tips

Dip can be prepared and refrigerated up to one day (24 hours) in advance; the flavours are enhanced as the dip rests. Dip is delicious used as a spread or condiment for wraps, sandwiches, or barbecue hamburgers.

Variation:
Stir in 1/4 cup (60 mL) crumbled bacon bits before serving.
