Traditional Spinach Dip

I grew up with this recipe being a staple especially around the holidays. If my Nana wasn’t making it my aunt was. This year my aunt didn’t make it and my Mom was heartbroken so I made it for her. When I was a kid I didn’t like it at all, but now I love it.

There are so many companies that claim this to be their recipe so there are plenty to give credit to. I personally think it’s a Knorr recipe but I am sure others would disagree.

Although all the recipes call for mayonnaise in it I never add it. The biggest reason is that I don’t think it taste very good in it, and if you leave it out the dip is even better. The bonus is… less calories!


  • 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 16 ounce container sour cream
  • 8 ounce package vegetable soup mix
  • 8 ounce can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. 
  2. Mix well
  3. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 2 hours but over night is much better
  4. Serve with crackers
