Ingredients
  • 1½ cups plain, 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fat free feta cheese
  • 2 generous handfuls of fresh kale, stems removed
  • ½ cup frozen spinach, excess water removed
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
Instructions
  1. De-stem kale leaves, tear them into small pieces and place them in a large bowl with 1 tsp of olive oil. Take bunches of kale in both hands and rub olive oil into leaves repetitively for a few minutes. You’ll notice a visible change; the leaves will darken, shrink in size and become softer in texture. Set aside.
  2. Add Greek yogurt, feta cheese, garlic and lemon juice to a food processor or blender. Blend for ~8-10 seconds, until creamy. Add kale and pulse a few times until the kale leaves break into small pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add diced red pepper, spinach, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Mix to evenly combine.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with extra fresh red pepper, feta and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve!
