Creamy Feta-Spinach Dip

This is a very tasty, hearty dip. It works better with crostini or pita chips than tortilla chips.

1 (8-ounce) carton plain low-fat yogurt
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 1/2 cups finely chopped spinach
1 tablespoon minced fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels, and let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl. Add the cream cheese, sour cream, and garlic, and stir until smooth, scraping sides of bowl once. Add feta crumbles. Stir in the spinach, minced dill, and pepper. Cover and chill. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired.
