The Best Ever Spinach Dip

I’m featuring some of the appetizers you know and love. They’re kind of “retro” and might bring back some good memories for you! Today: Knorr Spinach Dip! I’ve been making Knorr Spinach Dip for decades and I just love it. It’s so much better than any pre-made spinach dip you’d buy in a store.

With its bright green and confetti colors, it’s festive enough for a family Christmas movie night, a home New Year’s Eve celebration or a pot luck holiday party. Tomorrow is Ugly Christmas Sweater Day…maybe bring this to an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party! Make sure to make this at least 3 hours in advance so that the flavors can blend. Serve in a bread bowl for a special touch. This keeps well overnight in the refrigerator, if any is left!


  • A mixing bowl.
  • A serving bowl or bread bowl to hold the dip, plus a platter for dippers.
  • Dippers (ideas: Triscuits, Pita Crackers, Bagel Thins, Stacey’s Naked Pita Chips, baby carrots or carrot sticks, celery sticks, jicama sticks, grape tomatoes and sliced bell pepper).


  • I package of Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix. It is usually with the gravy and Hollandaise sauce mixes.
  • 1 ten-ounce package of frozen, chopped spinach (like the square, frozen block kind). Bring to a boil but do not overcook the spinach. Part of the appeal of the dip is the bright green color.
  • 1 16 oz container (2 cups) of sour cream or Greek yogurt.
  • 1 cup of Hellman’s mayonnaise. (I use light Hellman’s mayonnaise in my dip)
  • 1 can of water chestnuts
  • 3 green onions
  • If desired, add a squeeze of lemon juice, a dash of garlic powder or a dash of Tabasco
  • Parsley garnish, if desired


  • Cook the frozen spinach. Drain and squeeze dry by pressing it through a colander or sieve with paper towels.
  • Combine the Knorr mix in a mixing bowl with the mayonnaise and sour cream/yogurt and stir well.
  • Add the spinach and mix well.
  • Drain and chop a can of water chestnuts. Add them to bowl and mix well.
  • Chop 3 green onions. Add them to the bowl and mix well.
  • Put plastic wrap or a lld over the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
