Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen is back with a Fabulous Friday recipe for us! It’s the very popular – Spinach Dip. Janelle writes:
I love Knorr Spinach Dip…it’s so easy to make and always tasty. If you don’t know what to bring to your next bible study, football party, or ladies luncheon-bring this dip! It’s a sure crowd pleaser!
One of my friends, Mary, mentioned that she makes her spinach dip with a product called “Spin Blend”…so I gave it a whirl! It was delicious! The best way I can describe this product is it’s that it’s not as sweet as Miracle Whip, yet has more “pizazz” than Mayo. Spin Blend isn’t sold at every grocery store chain- I purchased mine at Fishers. If you can’t find it no worries…I have a solution!
Start off with a Knorr vegetable mix packet , sour cream, water chestnuts, green onions, spinach, and Spin Blend (***if you do not have Spin Blend, no worries-you can get a very similar flavor by using 1/2 Mayo 1/2 Miracle Whip!)
Squeeze water out of spinach
There will be a lot of water!
Chop green onions
Chop water chestnuts- I love the texture water chestnuts bring to this dip. Remember that a good recipe has a mix of taste AND texture! Just like adding croutons to a salad…this ingredient is key!
Put all the ingredients together into a large bowl.
Serve in a pumpernickel bread bowl (purchased in the bakery section at the grocery store) – Simply cut a circle in the top at an angle, scoop out bread and cube.
Refrigerate. Serve with veggies, bread sticks, and/ or cubed bread. This will be GONE in no time!!!!
- 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed (do not use fresh)
- 1 1/2 c. sour cream

- Serve with veggies, bread sticks, and bread cubes.
- This will go fast!!!!
Thank you SO much Janelle! I love spinach dip!
