      Every bit as good as the original! Even the kids couldn't tell it was a different recipe. I used Kraft low fat mayo. Pressing all the liquid out of the spinach is a "must". Don't just drain it. Use paper towels to press the water out. I made a double batch to make sure there was plenty for the party. Everyone loved it. I didn't have time to make a bread bowl so I bought a round loaf of Country French bread at the grocery store bakery. I just had the leftovers for lunch. The taste is better the longer it sits. I made it several hours ahead of time yesterday, but I think from now on I'll make it a day ahead and just add it to the bread bowl right before the party. For some reason, the Knorr package and website are now saying to cook and cool the spinach before pressing the water out. I just use the the thawed spinach. If it's not broke...

      I have to disagree with others, the low-fat version definitely does NOT taste as good as the full-fat version. It has an unpleasant aftertaste (presumably from the chemicals they use to stabilize the low-fat mayo) and the texture of the dip is too runny. I will not be making it again.

      I love spinach dip, and this I could eat without guilt ... and no one knew it was low fat. Thank you! I kept with my usual sourdough cubes, since I don't like hawaiian bread, but with the tang of the yogurt I think I will go with italian bread next time.
