How to Make Spinach Dip
Did you know that spinach dip isn’t always a hot appetizer? This mixture of mayo, frozen (but thawed) spinach, sour cream and perfect Knorr seasonings is a fantastic party blend that everyone will love.
Simply combine all ingredients and put in fridge to properly mix and soften. Then serve up this cold and creamy spinach dip in a bread bowl (or regular bowl) with crostini, Triscuits, carrot sticks or sliced French Bread.
While we do recommend making this dip in advance to give everything time to come together, we do not recommend FREEZING dip that contains dairy like sour cream. Dairy tends to separate in the freezer and can make Spinach Dip watery.
This dip is sure to be come one of your family and friends favorite ways to enjoy spinach!
Can you make Knorr Spinach Dip ahead of time?
Yes!! This easy spinach dip recipe should be made ahead at least 6 hours prior but better yet overnight.
This gives the granulated soup time to soften and dissolve into the spinach dip.
Spinach dip can be made and works great as a night before dip. The key here is to NOT add it to the bread bowl yet because the bread WILL get soggy in the fridge if the dip is added. Prep the dip and add the bread bowl the day of.
Why do you pick out the peas in the soup mix?
I also use the Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix (Dry Soup Mix, 1.4oz) and pick out the peas before I toss all those lovely spices in. Why do I pull out the peas?
I think it’s because the peas remain hard if you put them in the dip and it’s weird to bite into. Every other dehydrated veggie seems to soften just fine.
How to make a Bread Bowl
In my opinion, spinach dip should just be served in a bread bowl. It’s…well…the way it is! Plus one less dish to clean up.
To get started on making a bread bowl for you dip, use a small glass bowl and place it on top of your bread.
Cut around the bowl with a knife to create a circle, cutting at least 1″ into the bread.
Remove glass bowl.
Cut 1″ cubes into the bread in a criss-cross pattern.
Remove the bread with a spoon.
Continue to remove a second layer of bread to create a deeper cavity.
Fill the bread cavity with spinach dip and save the remaining bread for dipping.
Garnish the dip with fresh parsley if desired and appearances matter. In my house they don’t….but it sure looks pretty in pictures.
Spinach Dip Tips
The key to making the best spinach dip often relies on getting the details right. Thankfully this dip recipe is so easy that it doesn’t take much. Here are the best dips to create a cold, creamy, and cravable dip that everyone loves to snack on.
- This cold and classic dip doesn’t take long to make; just 5-10 minute mix up. The longest part of the recipe is defrosting the frozen spinach.
- You can thaw your spinach in the fridge but make sure you place in a bowl because the box always leaks.
- Remove the outer paper-like wrapper and discard, and carefully squeeze the box over the sink to drain/remove the water.
- Serve with Melba toast, crackers, bread sticks, or even carrots and celery. If it scoops, it works!
