      Made this last night for us, and finished off earlier today. Just as good the second day around. The Balkan yogurt combined makes this a winner. Went well with the walnuts too. I microwaved the walnuts for 15 second to warm them up. Tagged and made for The Best of 2012.

      (*Original review 9 February 2012. Resubmitted to add a star review.*)Delicious and very simple to make! To steam the spinach I placed it in a steamer basket and brought the water to the boil. *As soon as* the water came to a boil I immediately removed the spinach and transferred it to a food processor. Then the spinach and garlic were chopped finely on the PULSE setting. In a clean, dry pan the walnuts were toasted and set aside. Cleaned out the pan with a towel and [lightly] cooked the spinach and garlic in olive oil. A small amount of the spinach was set aside for garnishing and the rest stirred into the yogurt as directed. Walnuts were chopped and garnished around the dip and a few whole walnuts were set aside to garnish on top of the yogurt. Made for NA*ME tag/February! Served with: Easy Basturma Meatballs, Barbari (A Persian Bread), basic chelo and steamed vegetables. Thanks!

      This is a really great recipe that stays well overnight! I love spinach dips but never tried it with Balkan yougurt before. I find that the texture and thickness of the Balkan yogurt to be better suited for such dips and I will be using it again.
