Ingredients for Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe

Ingredients for Knorr Spinach Dip - Knorr Vegetable Mix, Frozen Spinach, Green Onions, small bowl of sour cream, open can of water chestnuts and small bowl of mayonnaise
  • Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix – Find this delicious seasoning packet in the grocery store near the soup mixes and seasonings. It is sometimes labeled as Vegetable Soup Mix. The Leek Recipe Mix also works great for a dip. 
  • Mayonnaise – I really like Duke’s Mayonnaise, use your favorite brand. I do think the full fat version makes the best dip. 
  • Sour Cream adds creamy flavor and balances out the mayo. 
  • Frozen Spinach or use 16 ounces of fresh spinach.
  • Water Chestnuts add a crunchy texture to the dip. Find them near in the Asian section of the grocery store.

Serving Suggestions for Easy Spinach Dip

  • Serve spinach dip in a bread bowl. Cut off about 1/4 inch of the top of an Italian loaf, sourdough or homemade bread bowl. Cut out the center, leaving the bread shell. Cut the insides into cubes. Spoon dip into the bread bowl and serve with bread cubes.
  • Most often we serve spinach dip with Ritz Chips or tortilla chips. 
  • Fresh vegetables like sliced cucumbers, celery, bell pepper strips, broccoli and carrot sticks go great with cold spinach dip.
  • Although we make this all year long, it is a must-have for every holiday and summer cookouts. We love to pile it on grilled burgers. Don’t knock it until you try it!

  1. I bought all the ingredients and going to try to get a game of chicken foot this weekend, I think it’s going to be a big hit with everyone. And worms that are dried,you can get them at Atwood’s,they will follow you any where. Chicken,s are so fun there so smart. Oh thanks fo the recipe.

  2. I prefer Knorr leek soup mix in my spinach dip. I’ve tried both and still prefer the leek over the vegetable. Give it a try.

  3. Have you ever tried plain Greek yogurt substituted for the sour cream? Just wondering if it will taste same or if it will mess up the texture or flavor.

  4. Could I use fresh spinach? Maybe steam it then use as the recipe requires. I have some fresh that I’m trying to get rid of before it goes bad.

  5. Do I have to cook the spinach?
    If I do have to cook it, how does one cook spinach? I’ve never done that before. Thank you

    1. Hi Tyra,
      I usually use frozen spinach and just thaw it out and make sure to squeeze out the liquid. My mother insists that you should heat the spinach first and she just puts the frozen package in the microwave for a few minutes. If you are worried about eating it raw, toss it in the microwave or add it to a pan of boiling water for about 3- 4 minutes, drain well and then let it cool enough that you can squeeze out the excess water. I hope that helps!

      1. Is there anyway I could send this through the mail. Granddaughter loves this spinach dip.. I make it always for her. This year I’m in the same state as her. That’s why I was wondering about mailing frozen spinach dip.

    1. Hi Sheila,
      I don’t think it would freeze well and it’s best if eaten within a couple of days so I’m not sure about trying to mail it.

  6. I haven’t made Knott Spinach Dip for years. My husband & I entertained often in the summer using the big brick barbecue that was one reason we wanted to buy the house! And that dip with fresh dipping veggies was a cool opposite to John’s spicy barbecue! But once he passed & the house was sold,$, people began inviting me to their parties.
    Several friends are coming by to my new home tomorrow as we’ve all just been tested for Covid & passed. So we’re taking advantage of getting together now before we are not as sure! What a time.
    Anyway, the Spinach Dip was a MUST & I’m thinking of making the dip now, the night before. I don’t recall; will it be better for the extra hours or less flavorful?
    Thanks ANYONE for the answer!

    1. Hi Maggie,
      It is great to make ahead the night before. My kids have trouble waiting on it to chill but it’s best if it has refrigerated at least a few hours before serving. Enjoy your visit!

  7. Should the frozen spinach be chopped or leave as is. In your photo it looks like it’s been chopped.

  8. I’ve been making this for 30+ years. Over time, I’ve made it mine. I don’t add the water chestnuts or green onions (I might start adding them to the top).
    Although I don’t want to give my secrets away, I will as I don’t think anyone will see or try it.
    I do the the normal with the Knorr soup mix, sour cream and mayo. I add more mayo. I add; lemon juice, 1/2 -whole lemon depending on the juice. I also add a clove or two of grated garlic, droed dill and my secret, bleu cheese crumbles. Yep. People who don’t like bleu cheese will love this dip and if they don’t? It’s more for yoy.
    A bread reound. Cut off the top and make a bowl. Pull out the bread and make bite size pieces, set aside. You can load the dip from there or get creative as I have.
    It’s good on bread as well as others suggested.

  9. My family loves Knorr spinach dip. My secret ingredient add-in is a small can of crushed pineapple, drained. We serve with club crackers or chips n a Hawaiian bread bowl.
