Make Ahead Recipe

I love easy recipes that can be made ahead of time when I am entertaining. It is so easy to just get pre-made things out of the refrigerator and serve. Since this dip is best if it is refrigerated two hours before serving, make this the day before.

Here is how to make the best spinach dip with simple ingredients.

Spinach. Thaw the frozen spinach and place it in a medium bowl that is microwave safe and cook on high for 3 minutes. Then transfer to a strainer to allow the spinach to cool down and the liquid to drain away. For best results, make sure to squeeze out the excess water before adding to the rest of the dip ingredients. Pro Tip. Line the strainer with paper towels if your strainer has larger holes. This will allow the water to drain without losing the smaller pieces of spinach.

In a medium bowl add sour cream, mayonnaise, Knorr Vegetable Mix, diced water chestnuts, and sliced green onions. I just mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until this mixture is well combined.

Add the spinach that has been cooked and the water squeezed out to the bowl. Stir to combine.

This dip tastes best when refrigerated at least 2 hours before serving. Therefore, place the ingredients in an airtight container and refrigerate 2 hours.

Serve.

Cold Spinach Dip Recipe Serving Ideas

Serve this great dip in a pretty serving bowl or a bread bowl. Make the bread bowl out of a round piece of white bread, pumpernickel bread, or other bread you love. Just cut off the top and hollow out the bread. Save the pieces you removed from the inside as they are great to eat with the dip appetizer.

This easy recipe is so versatile and one of the easiest appetizers. It is delicious with slices of bread, crackers, or even corn chips. Fresh vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrot sticks, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, cucumber slices, and tomatoes are all great pairings with this appetizer dip.

This makes it perfect to be added to a charcuterie board. Just make sure that you have a serving spoon in the dip so people can scoop some out and add it to their snack plate. It is a scrumptious finger food perfect for your next party.

Leftover Spinach Dip should always be refrigerated unless serving. It can be stored up to 4 days in the refrigerator. However, if you served your dip in a bread bowl, the bread will be soggy after a day. Therefore, remove the dip from the bread and store in an airtight container.

Do not freeze the creamy dip as the texture will change and be unappealing when thawed and we prefer our creamy spinach dip.

Recipe Variations

Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe Improved. While we love the original classic spinach dip recipe, we also love adding a block of cream cheese to this dip. It just amps up the creaminess and flavor of this dip. Also, it makes a bit more dip. When serving this at a party, it is one of the first things to get eaten, so adding a bit more helps make this appetizer stretch a bit further.

Add Seafood. It is so easy to turn this into a seafood dip. Add 1 cup of imitation crab or 1 cup of baby shrimp that have been cooked and shelled.

Artichoke Hearts. Spinach and artichoke hearts are a great combination. Add 1 can of artichoke hearts that have been drained and diced.

Greek Yogurt. Swap out the sour cream for Greek yogurt. It is hardly noticeable. Therefore, use either option interchangeably. I do this often in recipes depending on what I have available in my pantry and refrigerator.
