Party Spinach Dip

Apparently from a Jenny Craig cookbook, this dip is my mom's trademark dish and everyone's favorite at potlucks. Best part is, it's even pretty healthy.

12 oz. 1% cottage cheese
10 oz. frozen chopped spinach
8 oz. can chopped water chestnuts
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup dry vegetable soup mix (Knorr)
2 t onion, grated or finely minced
1 t lemon juice

Thaw and squeeze the spinach dry. Drain and chop the water chestnuts some more. Blend the cottage cheese in the food processor until smooth. Put everything together in a bowl and mix well. Cover and chill at least 3 hours before serving.

Serving ideas: party rye and pumpernickle slices, water crackers, melba rounds, hollowed bread bowl with cubed bread, Fritos (seriously, they are kinda perfect)
