How to Make Spinach Dip With Sour Cream

by Contributor

Items you will need

  • 1 package frozen spinach
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 package of dried vegetable soup mix
  • A bowl or a bread bowl made from a round loaf of rye or pumpernickel

Adding chopped spinach is a quick and easy way to dress up a classic sour cream dip. This rich dip goes well with bread, crackers, even pretzels. To add visual flair to a buffet table, serve the dip in a bread bowl: Slice off the top of a rounded loaf of bread and scoop out the bread inside. Put the dip inside the bread bowl and use the bread you removed to scoop up the dip.

Step 1

Thaw and drain one package of frozen spinach. Thawing should be done ahead of time; take the package out of the freezer the night before you want to prepare the dip. Drain the spinach in a strainer and/or with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible. If the spinach is not already chopped, chop it into small pieces.

Step 2

Combine 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup mayo and one package of dried vegetable soup mix in a bowl.

Step 3

Add the spinach to the mixture and stir well.

Step 4

Chill the mixture in the bowl for at least a few hours before serving.

Tips

  • Substitute low-fat versions of the sour cream and mayo for a slightly healthier dip. Experiment with additional seasonings like curry powders.

Warnings

  • Keep refrigerated when not in use. Mayo and sour cream shouldn't be left out to get warm for long periods of time.
