“Recipe I developed to use up wilting kale and a cheese I found too strong for my salad. Really amazed at how good it turned out! I took it over a friend's and served it with rye bagel chips from the local Amish market and it was a huge hit! I did all my fine chopping in a mini food processor, makes this pretty fast to whip up.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook kale by boiling water in a medium sauce pan, then adding the kale and boiling for about 5 minutes. Rinse under cold water and squeeze out excess.
  2. Chop kale very finely (I used a food processor for all fine chopping,) and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, mayonnaise and Greek yogurt. Warm the cream cheese if necessary to make it soft enough for mixing.
  4. Add onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and your melting cheese (not the parmesan!) to the cream mixture. and mix thoroughly.
  5. Mix in artichokes and kale.
  6. Spread dip into a greased (I sprayed with organic Pam) 9x9 baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle parmesan on top.
  8. You can store this wrapped in plastic overnight if needed, may even help blend the flavors.
  9. When ready to serve, bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  10. Serve warm with bagel chips, potato chips, crackers, pretzels or veggies.
