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!)

Thaw spinach

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.

Mix well

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.

  1. this is a delicious recipe, I’ve tried it and loved it. HOWEVER- if you like to watch your figure here is a “skinny” version that if you don’t taste them side by side, tastes just the same and is equally delicious.
    1 pk knorr vegetable soup mix
    1 pk frozen spinach
    1 can of water chestnuts
    1 8oz container of fat free cottage cheese
    blend the cottage cheese until smooth, add the remaining ingredients and mix well. let sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours (to hydrate the vegies in soup mix) I also add Parmesan cheese to taste. that’s it!! so easy, very healthy. I put mine on tomatoes and broil them, or I dip veggies in it. I love it warm, but it’s also good cool. enjoy!!!

    1. I LOVE the sound of your recipe! I’m trying ” health-ify” my heart and my waist line! 😉 I am going to try this asap.

  2. I have a Cally Spinach Dip version that I’m required to bring to every family occasion. It’s similar to Janelle’s but does not include the mayo or MW or Spin Blend.

    2 10-oz packages of frozen spinach, thawed and drained
    1 can water chestnuts, chopped
    1 pkg Knorr vegetable soup mix (no others come close)
    1 Tbsp Lipton onion soup mix
    16 oz sour cream
    1 round sourdough loaf, hollowed and center cubed
    Finger veggies: mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, celery, etc.
    Assorted crackers or sliced sourdough baguette

    I may substitute the green onions for the onion soup mix and see what the family prefers.

    Thanks for sharing Janelle’s recipe.
    Blessings,
    Becca

    1. Yummy! I am writing this one down as I am trying to eat heart healthy & this sounds pretty good sans the mayo. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. This looks delicious!! I love spinach dip and can’t wait to try this recipe! This may sound silly, but I’m very new to cooking and I don’t know how to thaw frozen spinach… How do you do that?
