Spinach dip to Live For

Updated on July 1, 2015

Spinach Dip

Food has always been a great connection for families. I know it has for my family. Every big holiday we have to make our infamous recipe of spinach dip with veggies. Food and the social aspect of food is so dynamic. Researchers state, that food, cooking and eating brings people together. Their is so much exciting research on food and how we all relate more and much more comfortably, at the dinner table. We relax around food and it's helpful for social interaction.

I want to give you a recipe that I hope my children's children will make for their families someday. Food brings family together. When I prepare my spinach dip recipe, the one thing I can count on is the spinach dip being gone by the end of the family celebration.

Ingredients

Sour Dough or Rustic Italian bread bowl

2- 32 ounces of sour cream

3 frozen chopped spinach dip boxes-less if not a huge fan of spinach, it is up to you

3 bags of Knorr Swiss vegetable soup mix without the hard veggies- I do not like the texture with the veggies in it, but if you like hard veggies in your dip then go for it.

You can double, triple this recipe depending on how many you will be serving.

Instructions

Sift the Knorr Swiss veggie soup mix into a large bowl from the dried veggies- Keep the soup mix and save the veggies for the next time you make a homeade soup.

Add the soup mix powder packet, sour cream and spinach and mix

Once you have mixed the dip, know that your in for quite a treat. Easy to make, delicious and kid friendly. You heard me right. My kids who don't even like veggies and dips, love and beg for it.

Prep and cut whatever veggies of your desire

Put dip in bread bowl with veggies around it

Presentation is everything, remember to keep your veggies on a plate mixed in color around the plate for beauty.

Knorr swiss is the best soup mix for this easy to make spinach dip. Trust me, as I have made all of them and none comes close to the flavor of Knorr Swiss.

I hope you and yours will try this recipe, since it is easy and soooo delicious. Like I said, it is a family tradition at my house for celebrations.

From my family to yours, enjoy

      I have been craving spinach dip all week and my local grocer didn't have any made when I did my shopping. I will try out your recipe for my 4th of July celebration. I have been wanting to know how to make it myself and your recipe seems simple enough - even for me! Thanks!

      School cafeterias ruined my perspective of spinach. However, as of late I've been a big boy and eating it in sandwiches and enchiladas. I will try this also. Yummy!

      Love spinach dip and your recipe sounds great. Using food as a focus for a family and friends gathering place as well as teaching cooking skills is great. Too many people have gotten away from those basic skills and values.

      Froggyfish, I must try it with green olives. I have never thought of that.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Hi Nellianna,

      I used to use sour dough way too much so I cant do that anymore. Smart to use the more healthy breads. Thanks for your comment.

      I love it, but the problem is it would make me hungry.Whenever I go to any pages where I find so tasty things,I have to rush back to the kitchen as I become real hungry.Thanks for making me hungry again Healing Touch.

      Yummy. I can literally sit down in one sitting and consume this fantastic treat. I love it. I think sourdough bread is by far my choice and spinach what can I say it's the Popeye in me. Knorr veggie mix is new to me, will have to give that one a try.

      I love anything spiniach! The dip looks sooooo yummy, though I'd prefer it with whole-grain bread. But as white bread goes, the sourdough is much preferred. Thank you for sharing this!
