There's nothing particularly "fancy" about this recipe--I found it on the back of the Knorr Vegetable Soup, Dip, Recipe Mix box and it is now one of my favorite spinach dip recipes! I'm always looking for new appetizer ideas, because it never fails that I need something quick to take to someone's home for whatever gathering it may be and spinach dip is certainly one of those things that always goes over well!
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 container (16 oz) sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise (they suggest using Hellmann's, which I am partial to anyway!)
1 package Knorr vegetable soup, dip & recipe mix (I'm sure you could substitute another brand!)
1 can (8 oz) water chestnuts, drained and chopped (optional)
3 green onions, chopped
In a medium bowl, stir spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, soup mix, water chestnuts and green onions until well mixed. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours to blend flavors. Stir well. If desired, spoon into round bread bowl and serve with cut up vegetables or chips.
Variations: (I have not tried either, but thought I'd include them!)
Spinach & Cheese Dip: Add 2 cups (8 oz) shredded Swiss cheese with spinach.
Yogurt Spinach Dip: Substitute 1 container (16 oz) plain lowfat yogurt for sour cream.
NOTE: I keep meaning to thank two fellow bloggers (Project Mommyhood and Jonas Family) for passing along an award to me! I apologize that it's taken me so long to make mention of it on my blog, but I've just been so preoccupied lately with different personal issues...PLEASE know that I sincerely appreciated you both thinking of me!!!
