Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

This recipe is one of my favorite quick snacks. Its quick, healthy, and so simple. Even the kids like it.. and they don't like much of anything! It calls for a few simple pantry staples and you are well on your way to yummytown! Seriously. I can make a meal out of this dip.  
10 oz fresh baby spinach - chopped
1 cup plain yogurt (I prefer Chobani, but you can use your favorite)
4oz cream cheese - softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesean cheese (more if you're feeling frisky)
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions (I usually add more)
1 garlic clove - minced (or two, or three.....)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Mix the cheeses, garlic, scallions and lemon juice together, then add the chopped spinach and mix well. 
The measurements are more of a suggestion. I generally just throw it all together haphazardly and it always turns out wonderful. Except the one time I went a little crazy with the lemon juice.. Don't do that. Make ahead and keep in the fridge to share with friends or gobble down immediately with some pita chips or carrot sticks.  YUM!

YUM—and goodness knows I've got plenty of carrot sticks courtesy of my CSA.

This looks delicious--for both veggies and pita chips and even spread on a sandwich.  I can easily see how you can make a meal out of this.
