Author: Blair
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (1.4 ounce) package Knorr Vegetable Soup mix
  • 1 (9 or 10 ounce) package frozen, chopped spinach, THAWED
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • For serving: raw veggies, crackers, chips, or bread
  1. Squeeze spinach 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.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vegetable soup mix (just the dry mix), spinach, sour cream, and bell pepper until completely combined.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours (or overnight) before serving.
Recipe Notes
  • Omit the red bell pepper and make a 4-ingredient Spinach Dip!
  • Feel free to stir in other minced veggies for a colorful, flavorful dip!
  • Make a healthy spinach dip by using light mayonnaise and low fat sour cream.
  • How do you thicken spinach dip? The key to a thick, creamy spinach dip is really making sure that you squeeze all of the liquid out of the thawed spinach.
  • Does spinach dip need to be refrigerated? Yes! The spinach dip will stay fresh on the counter at room temperature for up to 2 hours. After that, it's safest to keep the dip in the refrigerator.
  • Can spinach dip be made a day ahead? Yes! The spinach dip will last in the fridge for about 3-4 days. Just make sure to give it a good stir again right before serving.
  • Can you freeze spinach dip? No. The sour cream and mayonnaise will "break" when thawed and give the dip a very unappetizing texture.
  • Is spinach dip keto? This dip has 8 grams of fat, 0.8 grams of sugar, 2.3 grams of carbs and only 87 calories in each 2-tablespoon serving -- making it a keto friendly appetizer!
  • Is spinach dip gluten free? It's not clear on the Knorr website whether or not the seasoning mix is gluten-free. Since the product ingredients are always changing, they suggest checking the packet in order to determine if it's gluten-free. It should be marked accordingly.
