Spanakopita (< σπανάκι 'spinach' + πίτα 'pie') is a Greek spinach pie with a filling of spinach, feta cheese (usually), green onions, egg and seasoning (often including dill). The filling is wrapped in layers of phyllo pastry with butter and/or olive oil, either in a large pan from which individual servings are cut, or rolled into individual triangular servings. Once baked, it is golden in color.

In Greece, it is mostly eaten as aa appetiser or snack, an alternative to tyropita.

In restaurants it can be served with tzatziki sauce and a Greek salad. It has become a popular item in Greek restaurants worldwide, and is served as either a light meal or an appetizer.
