Spinach Dip

Looking for an easy recipe to bring to a Fourth of July BBQ? Well, look no further, my friends!

Spinach Dip is by far my most requested recipe from family and friends…and it couldn’t be simpler to make! With only 4 ingredients + a delicious loaf of bread, you’ll be good to go in about ten minutes! Plus it’s extremely portable, which makes it the perfect appetizer to bring to a party.

Cast of characters:

  • Knorr Vegetable Packet
  • 8 oz container Mayo
  • 15 oz container Sour Cream
  • Frozen Spinach
  • Loaf of Bread

Start by putting your frozen spinach into the microwave on the defrost setting. It usually takes about 5 minutes to defrost. In the meantime, combine your Knorr packet, sour cream, and mayo into a medium sized bowl.

Once your spinach is defrosted, squeeze out all the liquid. I do this by taking one handful at a time and squeezing over the sink.

Do not skip this step or your dip will be all watery!

Next, mix together the spinach with the other three ingredients.

Cover with Saran wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of two hours but up to overnight.

Before you are ready to serve, slice up a loaf of bread into cubes. I slice about an hour before it’s time to serve and store in a ziploc bag until displaying.

Typically I’ll use a round loaf, but you can’t go wrong here. I’ve used pumpernickel, rye, sourdough, semolina cheese, etc. You name it- if it looks good, it will taste good with the dip!

If transporting to a party, keep your bread in the ziploc bag and put the dip in a small tupperware.

Bring a dip serving platter and set up upon arrival.

Doesn’t get much simpler than that!

  1. Yuuuum! I’d like to make more dips but a lot of them are mayo based and my boyfriend absolutely despises anything with the similar texture (sour cream, yogurt, etc). It makes ordering things hard sometimes!
