Sorry, Mary, but unless you folks thrive on bland, this dip gets 2 thumbs down. Where is the flavor? I'm an award winning cook and I threw this out, despite hoping that it would live up to its description. Yech! Those poor artichoke hearts gave it up for nothing.

I love spinach artichoke dip but my old recipe was very high in fat. This light version was delicious and very easy. I did use fresh spinach that I steamed first and served with pita chips instead of veggies.
