    Sometimes you just have to whisk. Dare i say i like mixing by hand (also food processor scared). This is a great recipe. I fall back to hummus too often. I like the kale addition and of course the MSG omission (we’re not friends either).

    It may not have tasted the way you wanted, but you sold it with the awesome pictures. I kind of like the refreshing zing you get when you leave out the “unami” flavor in dips. I’m going to try for sure!

    I used to love making this dip… but gave it up b/c of the packet. So glad you’ve found a healthier way to do it! And frankly, even if it’s a little different than before, as long as it’s tasty AND healthy, I’m sold on your version!

    And the pictures are amazing… of course 😉

    I love the addition of fresh kale in this. I make a delicious raw kale salad that is so filling. Your photos are fantastic – I feel like I can reach out and touch those peppers!

    Oh boy do I love than infamous spinach dip and am thrilled to find an “almost” substitute – it looks so pretty (once again, your photos are fabulous.) Definitely want to try this (and a great way to get some extra kale in kiddies….and my husband!)

    I love this recipe! I am a new lover of kale, so very excited to see this lovely recipe:-) My Mom used to make the spinach dip all the time. Our favorite dip is a Greek yogurt, southwest dip my hubby makes:-) Love and Hugs, Terra

    Making mayo has been on my “list” for a while. Thanks for the tips! Your recipe sounds very good! I’m sure there is a lot of “stuff” in that spinach dip mix, and it’s probably impossible to recreate that with natural ingredients. But your dip is going on “my list!” I haven’t made spinach dip with the mix in years, but it would be fun to make a healthier version. Brings back memories… :)

    This looks like a great healthy remake of this dip. I should try this for the next party we need to bring something to.

    Just last night I was looking at recipes and telling Nick how much I love kale, as he was saying “eww, no, I want spinach!”. So, I’m guessing he wouldn’t like this, however, I think it’s brilliant! Some people don’t like the texture of kale, but I would bet that the kale gets softer when it’s mixed with all of these creamy ingredients.

    It looks good to me! Maybe a little garlic powder/garlic salt (or minced raw garlic if you can handle it) will give it a fuller flavor without having to use that dreaded MSG. (?) Remind me to tell you a funny story about MSG the next time we talk… :)
