Homemade Spinach Dip

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

I love spinach dip. I always make the Knorr's spinach dip recipe that comes on the Knorr's package. I have been waiting all fall to have enough spinach to make the recipe. It calls for a 10 oz. frozen spinach package. I decided to use 10 oz. of fresh spinach and shred it with my food processor. The dip was excellent, but the only thing that was different is that the creamy portion of the dip was a mint green color instead of white. I guess that was because the spinach was super fresh, either way it didn't affect the taste.

I washed the spinach good in my sink

Then I shredded it via my food processor.

Final product was delicious, I can't wait to make more.


INGREDIENTS
1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, cooked, cooled and squeezed dry
1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
1 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
1 package Knorr® Vegetable recipe mix
1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, drained and chopped (optional)
3 green onions, chopped (optional)
PREPARATION Everyone Loves Our Dip! Here's How We Make It:
Combine all ingredients and chill about 2 hours. Serve with your favorite dippers to your favorite people.
A new serving idea: Hollow out cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes. Fill vegetables with Knorr Spinach Dip and garnish with a sprig of dill.

What a great idea! I love spinach dip too but never thought to use fresh grown spinach to make it. I like the mint green color too.

Thanks, it did give it somewhat of a holiday feel with the green color. My biggest problem is I didn't plant enough spinach. It seems like you have to plant alot of it to get a decent amount.
