Warm Feta & Artichoke Dip


 I have partnered with Chobani on this blog post, creating a healthy, yet flavorful appetizer, just in time for those holiday gatherings!  #MadeWithChobani

Why is it that during the holidays I crave finger food?  That I could base my entire supper simply on an appetizer?  Or that I'd just rather snack than eat a meal?

Well, I'll tell you one thing.  I ate this dip as an appetizer, a meal and a snack all in the span of three days.

I was recently inspired by the #MadeWithChobani Project to see if I could come up with a healthy dessert, appetizer or meal.  And since I consider dips a "meal", I opted for the appetizer round.  Doesn't everyone love a good dip at a party?  Or in my case, just to eat at home in your jammies?  I do!

I have long been a lover of Chobani yogurt.  It is not uncommon for us to go through a 32 oz. container of it in less than a week.  The kids eat it almost daily for breakfast and I use it often in baking, as well as more savory dishes like this dip.

Not only am I presenting a healthy dip here, but gosh darn isn't it pretty?  I'm kicking myself for not throwing in some chopped green peppers or diced green chilies - you know to make it a bit more "holiday-ish".

But I still think it is PERFECT for your upcoming holiday gathering.

The tang of the feta and the sharpness of the parmesan cheese give it a "pop", but the yogurt and dab of mayonnaise help to mellow it out.  Since I had Triscuit Thin Crisps with Sea Salt at home that is what I used as a dipper.

Although, I'm guessing a nice hunk of French bread would be absolutely divine as well.

Please give this warm dip a try!

I promise you will fall in love.  Take it to your next party, put it in the slow cooker, heck, slather it on the bread used in a grilled cheese {yes, I'm dreaming of this...}.

Have I convinced you yet?
