Knorr Spinach Dip

Classic spinach dip recipe using Knorr vegetable recipe mix. Easy appetizer recipe that you can make ahead of time and bring to any party.

If you invite me to a party chances are I am making this Knorr spinach dip. It’s such a classic recipe. I wouldn’t be surprised if my family has been making it for over 30 years. It’s so delicious, easy to make and better than any store bought spinach dip.

This cold dip is made with a base of sour cream and mayonnaise mixed with spinach, water chestnuts and scallions.

While I love a chilled spinach dip if you are looking for a warm one try this baked feta spinach and artichoke dip. Some other great appetizer ideas are pizza monkey bread, steak and cheese wontons, meatball sub cups and jalapeño popper biscuit pockets.

Knorr Spinach Dip Ingredients

  • Frozen Spinach- Chopped frozen spinach thawed, cooked and excess liquid drained. You can also use fresh spinach and cook it down.
  • Sour Cream- I like to use full fat sour cream in dips. You can use light sour cream or plain greek yogurt.
  • Mayonnaise- I like to use a full fat mayo but you can use light or an olive oil based mayonnaise.
  • Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix– This comes in an envelope most often found with seasonings in the grocery store.
  • Water Chestnuts– usually found in the international aisle. They give the dip a great crunch. You can leave these out but I highly suggest adding them.
  • Scallions- Also known as green onions.
  • Seasonings- Salt, Pepper and garlic powder. I like to add these to the spinach while cooking to add some flavor.
