Why you will love Spinach Dip made with Knorr!

My favorite spinach dip recipe, without water chestnuts or artichokes, is an authentic, delicious spinach dip recipe that everyone will want seconds of.

Often served at baby showers, family gatherings, and holiday parties, cold spinach dip is delicious without cooking or baking. A blend of frozen spinach (Drained of excess water), Knorr seasoning mix, and mayo and sour cream make this recipe easy and creamy.

There are a lot of takes on the Knorr spinach dip recipe – from warm and melty with mozzarella cheese to additives like artichokes and cream cheese, but sometimes classic spinach dip is all we want.

Knorr Spinach Dip Ingredients

How to Make Knorr Spinach Dip

Preparation Step: Before beginning the Knorr spinach dip preparation, thoroughly thaw the spinach. I prefer to remove the peas from the Knorr dry vegetable soup mix for a smoother texture. This step is optional and based on personal preference.

Combining Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, add the thawed spinach, mayonnaise, sour cream, and Knorr soup vegetable mix.

Mixing: Stir the ingredients, ensuring that everything is well combined. The goal is to achieve a smooth consistency.

Refrigeration: Transfer the Knorr spinach dip mixture to a container with a tight-fitting lid for the best flavor and consistency. Refrigerate the dip for at least 6 hours. However, allowing it to set overnight will enhance the flavors further, making it even more delicious.

Serving: Carve out a bread bowl and pour the dip inside. It’s the perfect centerpiece for any gathering.

Make Knorr Spinach Dip Ahead of Time

Hey there, fellow Knorr Spinach Dip lovers! Wondering if you can whip up that delicious dip a little earlier than party time?

You’re in luck because not only can you, but you should.

Why Make Spinach Dip Ahead?

Making the Knorr Spinach Dip ahead of time is an absolute must.

Allowing the dip to sit for at least 6 hours, or even better, overnight, gives the granulated soup seasoning packet ample time to soften and dissolve properly.

Night-Before Prepping: It’s a perfect “night-before” dish. But here’s a little insider tip: while the dip gets better with a bit of fridge time, bread doesn’t play so nicely. Hold off on that part if you plan to serve it in a bread bowl.

Making Spinach Dip with Fresh Spinach:

Preparation: Begin by washing the fresh spinach thoroughly to remove any grit or dirt. Remove any tough stems.

Cooking: Wilt the fresh spinach with water or oil over medium heat in a large pot or skillet. This should only take a few minutes. The spinach will reduce in volume.

Draining: This step is crucial. Once the spinach is cooked, transfer it to a colander and press out as much water as possible. You can also wrap the spinach in a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze it to remove excess moisture. You want the spinach to be as dry as possible, so your dip isn’t watery.

Chopping: Roughly chop the drained spinach. This will make it easier to incorporate into your dip and will mimic the texture of the finely chopped frozen spinach.

Mixing: Now, replace the frozen spinach in your dip recipe with the prepared fresh spinach. Mix with your other ingredients, and you’re good to go!

How to Make a Bread Bowl for Serving Dips.

A family favorite fresh vegetable dip, serve it in a homemade bread bowl (those instructions are below as well), which looks great at a potluck or party appetizer.

  • To make a hollowed-out bread bowl for dip, place a small glass bowl on top of your bread.
  • Cut around the bowl with a knife to create a circle, cutting at least 1 inch into the bread. Remove the 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 homemade spinach dip and save the remaining bread for dipping.
  • Garnish the dip with fresh parsley or sliced green onions if desired.

How to Store Leftover Spinach Dip

Seal: Use an airtight container to store the dip.

Refrigerate: Place the sealed container in the refrigerator. Properly stored, spinach dip should last for 3–4 days.

Freezing: While it’s possible to freeze spinach dip, dairy-based dips might change texture once thawed, becoming more grainy or separated. We do not recommend it. 

What to serve with Spinach Dip

Fresh Veggies for Dipping: Raw veggies like celery sticks, sliced bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, or even baby carrots. Any selection of veggies you love will be perfect.

Bread and Chip Based: Melba toast, tortilla chips, crackers, baked pita chips, crusty bread sticks, bread pieces of sourdough bread, rye bread, or even strong kettle-cooked potato chips.

Notes

Note on Dried Peas:
I like to pick out the peas for this dip. But hey, that’s just a personal choice! If you’re a pea fan, feel free to keep ’em in. I just find them out of place in a dip.
