I’ve got a crowd-pleasing recipe for you today—Spinach Dip. This dip is a true classic, perfect for gatherings, game days, or just a cozy night with family. The creamy base of sour cream and mayonnaise, combined with the flavorful Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix, creates a deliciously rich foundation.

Variations I Love Trying!

  • Fresh Spinach – If you can’t find frozen spinach, use a pound of baby spinach instead of the 10-ounce block. Finely chop the spinach before steaming it down.
  • Artichoke Hearts – For extra flavor and crunch, dice a drained can of artichoke hearts and mix it with the chopped spinach.
  • Green Onions – Finely chop 2-3 green onions, including both the green and white parts, and add them to the dip.
  • Greek Yogurt – Replace the sour cream with Greek yogurt for a healthier option.
  • Spice It Up– Add chopped candied jalapeños or red pepper flakes for some extra heat.
  • Add Parmesan– Shred some Parmesan cheese and mix it in for added flavor.

Tips You Will Thank Me For!

  • Use Fresh Spinach: If you opt for fresh spinach, steam it gently until just wilted, then finely chop it. This helps maintain a vibrant color and fresh taste.
  • Enhance Texture: For an added crunch, toast the water chestnuts lightly in a pan before dicing and adding them to the dip.
  • Flavor Boost: To elevate the flavor, mix in a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce or a dash of hot sauce.
  • Herb Addition: Fresh herbs like dill or parsley can add an extra layer of flavor. Finely chop and mix them in just before serving.
  • Cheese Upgrade: Stir in a handful of finely grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese for a richer taste.
  • Presentation Tip: For a more attractive presentation, garnish the dip with a few extra green onion slices or a sprinkle of paprika.
  • Chill Time: Allowing the dip to chill for at least 4 hours (instead of just 2) can further enhance the flavors as they meld together.
  • Serving Idea: For a more rustic presentation, serve the dip in a hollowed-out round loaf of bread, but be sure to keep extra dip on hand for refills.

Make Ahead and Storage Instructions!

  • This spinach dip is perfect for making ahead! It needs to chill for at least 2 hours, but you can make it a full day in advance. The flavor improves as it sits.
  • Wait until you’re ready to serve the dip before transferring it to the bread bowl.
  • Store leftover dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. If you refrigerate the dip in a bread bowl, it will become soggy and stale after one day.
