Today I’m sharing one of my favorite dips– spinach dip. And since it contains spinach in it, I’m pretty certain it counts as a vegetable and is more healthy than unhealthy.
One thing I love about this spinach dip recipe is that you can prepare it in minutes and it requires only 4-5 ingredients. The dip requires time to chill and set up in the refrigerator so it’s a perfect dip to make the night before a party. Because of the chilling time, keep in mind that this isn’t a last minute type of dip.
My aunt Connie, my mom’s twin sister, has been making this for years and serving it at family get togethers. It’s one of those things I can always count on seeing. She even made some for our gender reveal party.
It’s customary in my family to serve spinach dip with a loaf of King’s Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread. You can slice the bread in to small pieces or pull it off into little chunks like what I did in the photos.
If you’re not a fan of Hawaiian Bread, you can use tortilla chips, crackers, or vegetables.
The recipe calls for you to cook, cool, and squeeze dry the spinach. In case you’re a squeeze dried spinach novice, allow my to explain the process I implement. I buy a package of spinach (usually the steamable kind), steam it in the microwave, and allow it to cool while I combine all the other ingredients in a bowl. Once it’s cool, I grab a handful of spinach and squeeze it with my hands over the sink and add it to the bowl. I do this until all of the spinach has been squeeze dried.

This looks so delicious!
It is! Brad even likes it.
This looks so yummy. I will have to make this. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome, Trine! Enjoy your weekend!
Mmmmm this looks delicious! I love fresh bread with dip- I think I’d serve this with fresh rye bread or marbled bread. I’ve never heard of Knorr Veggie mix I’ll have to look for it at my local store! Is it a refrigerated item or is it more of a packet flavor mix?
Thanks, Rachel! It’s a packet flavor mix. I found it in the soup section in Target. Here’s what it looks like: http://www.knorr.com/product/detail/245893/vegetable
This is a family favorite! I’ve never tried it with bread, but we love it with Triscuits.
I love spinach dip. I like how you tore off the little pieces of bread. It makes the presentation look unique. I don’t really know where that came from. Thanks for this recipe!
Where was this recipe for Super Bowl Sunday? It looks so good! We love a good dip in this house.
I make basically the same spinach dip. I also add 8 ounces of Philadelphia cream cheese and 3-4 green onions. I love it!
I’m not a mayo fan so i sub cream cheese instead and leave out the chestnuts. It’s also great made low fat by using low fat dairy products. Fat free doesn’t seem to work the same though.
Thank you this was and is my children and husband’s favorite appetizer for every occasion.
I love this recipe! Instead of the Knorr vegetable mix, I use two packs of the Hidden Valley Garden Green Onion Ranch.
