The bold flavor of blue cheese and saltiness of the bacon give a creative punch to your average spinach dip. Serve Blue Cheese-Bacon-Spinach Dip with celery sticks for an added crunch.

How to Make It

Cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Remove all but 1 teaspoon drippings from pan. Add spinach to pan, stirring until wilted. Cool slightly. Combine bacon, spinach, yogurt, sour cream, blue cheese, minced garlic, crushed red pepper, and kosher salt. Serve with celery sticks.

So, despite your dislike for blue cheese, you still selected a recipe with blue cheese in the title. If you'd planned to review your own dip instead of this one, you should have. Why ruin the rating for something you didn't even make?

This required a total make over to bring it up to our standards when it comes to taste, richness and comfort factor. That seems to be the case when it comes to most recipes from "Cooking Light". I used 6 slices of thick cut deli bacon diced and cook til crisp, swapped out the Greek yogurt and light sour cream for regular sour cream, used about 3 oz of crumbled herbed feta, (we don't like the taste of blue cheese) doubled the salt and added 1/4 tsp of cracked black pepper. After the make over we loved it and gave it 5 stars. I would never make this recipe as written, that is why it got 1 star. This made enough for the 3 of us. Think about it, 2 Tbs is a tease.
