A slight tweak to the classic Knorr spinach dip recipe and you have one of my most-requested game day and holiday appetizers!
In yesterday's "Super Bowl party prep made easier" post I referred to two game day appetizers, a southwestern vegetable dip and the always popular spinach dip. I'm going to share both recipes this week and first up is my favorite: the classic Knorr spinach dip.
Yes, I said Knorr and yes, it's off the back of the package.
I have loved this spinach dip recipe for years and not just because it's one of the easiest dips to make. Every time I bring this spinach dip to a party, people absolutely love it. When I tell them it's from the back of the Knorr Vegetable recipe mix, they kind of can't believe it.
I think the rave reviews of this recipe are the result of a few minor adjustments, all of which are optional of course.
Optional only if you want your spinach dip to taste like everyone else's spinach dip.
I highly recommend serving it in a sourdough bread bowl. This time I used a square bowl and loved how it turned out!
Printable recipe for my tweaked version of the classic Knorr spinach dip. Enjoy!
- 1 (12-oz) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, rinsed and squeezed dry
- 1 (16-oz.) container light sour cream
- 1 cup light mayonnaise
- 1 package Knorr Vegetable recipe mix
- 1 can sliced water chestnuts, chopped
- 5 green onions, chopped
- 1 sourdough bread bowl
- Combine all ingredients and chill overnight.
- Cut out center of bread bowl and remove extra bread. Fill with spinach dip.
- Cut or tear extra bread into bite-size pieces for dipping. Serve dip with sliced baguettes (sourdough or multigrain), pita crackers, tortilla chips (white, yellow or blue corn), sliced vegetables (carrots, bell peppers) or butter crackers.
