"This spinach dip is a HUGE favorite. It'll be at our Christmas gathering this year in recipe# 131168- Spinach Dip Pinwheels. What a great idea! I already purchased spinach tortillas in a festive shade of green. I think I'll roll them up then wrap & chill them before slicing- maybe the dip will firm up a bit and allow for easier cutting. It's delicious in a bread bowl as well, mainly pumperknickel or King's Hawaiian. Last season we served it that way on a large gold platter, surrounded by red, green, & white veggies (peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cherry or grape tomatoes, celery, etc.) & some people thought it was catered! Your bread bowl will likely be devoured too- as long as there's any dip left, that is. Now, since I've already bought the ingredients, can I resist making & eating it before X-mas?"
"I bring this dip to parties all of the time and it's a big hit. I use the Knorr's Leek soup mix instead. Try this instead of the vegetable soup mix. It's great with wheat thins or sliced baquettes."
"THE Classic; however the soup mix is like 3 oz., not 8 ounces. Hate to nit pick, but it is the classic and there's no need to confuse the only person in the world who has not made it before."
"This was probably the first dip I ever made!!! Always good!"
"Always a favorite at this house!!"
"I love this classic spinach dip recipe! I made it today and remembered how good it is. Thanks for posting!"
"Mmmmmm....... Love this recipe Nothing better especially at Christmas."
"The best one!"
"Love this! It's a must for Christmas parties!"
"This recipe has been a tradition in our house for years and we never seem to make enough because its just so good. We especially love it with Wheat Thins Crackers"
"This dip is delicious, but be careful it will give you a great deal of gas....sorry but that is what happens"
"I absolutely love this spinach dip. I think that it's the best spinach dip recipe ever. The crunch of the water chestnuts adds a nice texture to the dip. I sometimes make this with light mayo and light sour cream and it's still a big hit."
"My friend made this and it was really good, she told me she left out the water chestnuts. *Update* I too made it, and I noticed the directions both on the back of the Knorr soup mix and here fail to mention that you should blanch the baby spinach if it's fresh. Just place in boiling water for no more than 1 min (or less) just until it starts to wilt. Then squeeze as much water as possible and the spinach will break apart."
"have used this recipe for eons. it is not Cmas without it. to serve this dip, i purchase a whole round pumpernickel bread. hollow out the center and cut into cubes. pour the spinach dip into the bread, then place the cubes around the loaf and guests just dip the cubes into the dip. once the cubes are gone, guests just start breaking the bread off and dipping. there are no leftovers."
"Classic! Thanks for posting the recipe."
"This is DD's favorite dip ever. She could eat it for breakfast if I'd let her. I made this for our football weekend bash and it was gone within the hour. Thank you for sharing with classic."
"This spinach dip is an all-time favorite of mine. I used the suggestion of hollowing out grape tomatoes and cucumber slices and filling with the dip as a new way to serve. Fun and delicious!"
"Make this recipe all the time. Always use some Cayenne Pepper, to kick it up!"
"I love this recipe and it is always a big hit when I make it for holiday gatherings."
"Love this dip, but it also makes a great addition to hot cooked potatoes or to cooked and cooled potatoes to make a really good potato salad."
