This creamy spinach-feta combo dresses up fresh vegetables or baked pita chips deliciously. Or use it as a tasty spread for sandwiches and wraps.

Place spinach in a small saucepan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat and then cook for 1 minute; drain well.
Place spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, feta cheese, 2 tablespoons chives, lemon juice and pepper in a blender; puree. Taste dip and add salt, if desired. Spoon dip into a serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons chives. Yields about 4 tablespoons dip per serving.
