Jazz up the veggie tray at your next gathering with this 5-Ingredient Creamy Spinach Dip! It’s a crowd-pleasing, easy appetizer recipe that’s perfect for just about any occasion!
Hey, guys! It’s officially holiday party season, so I thought you might appreciate a delicious new snack idea that you can serve at your next potluck.
Since just about every cocktail party includes a vegetable tray of some sort, why not make it extra-special with a Creamy Spinach Dip?! Believe me…this stuff disappears FAST!
I originally received this recipe from a friend here in Madison years and years ago. It was served at a church potluck and I instantly requested the details — I knew that I needed to have it!
The fact is, this is hardly a recipe at all! It seriously doesn’t get much easier, which is a good thing because the holiday season is already complicated enough!
Let’s keep the menu simple with quick recipes that deliver maximum flavor for minimal effort!
You know that I love a good shortcut, so I take some help from a packet of seasoning mix to give the Spinach Dip plenty of zesty flavor. You can find this particular packet in the soup aisle at your grocery store, since many folks use it to make vegetable soup.
With the addition of some fresh veggies, your semi-homemade dip is flavorful, full of texture, and absolutely deeee-licious!
Best of all, you can prepare the Spinach Dip in advance and keep it covered in the refrigerator until you’re ready to party. It’s fine overnight (or even for a day or two).
Arrange some crackers, French bread, fresh veggies, nuts, and/or cheese on a tray and your job is done. Just pop the champagne or pour the wine and you’ll have some very happy guests…with no stress for the hostess!
5-INGREDIENT CREAMY SPINACH DIP
5-Ingredient Creamy Spinach Dip
Yield 4 cups
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (1.4 ounce) package Knorr Vegetable Soup mix
1 (10 ounce) package frozen, chopped spinach
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
For serving: raw veggies, crackers, chips, or bread
Cook spinach according to package instructions. Cool, and squeeze dry. In order to get most of the water out, I like to wrap the cooked spinach in a dish towel and wring out the water by squeezing the spinach in the towel.
In a medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vegetable soup mix (just the dry mix), spinach, sour cream, and bell pepper until completely combined.
Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours (or overnight) before serving.
