Auntie Linda's Spectacular Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip with Sour Cream Base

Spinach Dip

I've been making this delicious spinach dip for years. I use a sour cream base versus the mayonnaise version because I think it tastes much better. My friends and family beg me to bring this appetizer to social gatherings. I cut up my favorite vegetables to go with the dip. Here are my favorite vegetables:

  • Cucumbers
  • Baby Tomatoes
  • Green, Yellow or Red Bell Peppers
  • Scallions
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Black Olives

I put out a French Baguette and Tortilla Chips to accompany this tasty treat. Enjoy and Dip away!

Really sounds good, I will try it. Fixed your oven fried zucchini, squash and cucumbers yesterday and we loved them, had them with baked fish and crab cakes, ^

I should not be reading this so late at night as I am now very hungry for this dish. I love using both sour cream and mayo, guess it just depends on what I have on hand at the time. Your photo has me drooling!

Hi Teaches-Hope you didn't make this for a midnight snack. LOL I think the preference of sour cream/mayo is what you get use to. Thanks so much for coming by teaches. Have a great week ahead.

This looks like dinner for me. I'm a real fan of snack food instead of heavy meals at night. Love the idea of sour cream with it.

Hi Peg-I don't care for Spinach Dip with a Mayo base. I know what you mean by eating snacky foods as meals. I do that a lot too. Have a great night my friend.

I bet this would be good with sour cream. I'm not much of a mayo fan.

FlourishAnyway-me either. I have never cared for the mayo recipe and always use the sour cream. It's so much better. Thank you for coming by.
