I used Greek yogurt. UMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! This is NOT an American dip. I you want something different try this, you'll love it! My husband likes it with cayenne for heat.

Good. I added amounts of ingredients to taste using baby spinach, Balkan yogurt, regular cooking onion, half the amount of optional garlic, canola oil, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Made for Visiting Iran(Persia) in June 2012!
