Cold Spinach Dip

Recipe by katindallas
READY IN: 4hrs
YIELD: 2 cups


  • 1
    (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1
    (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1
    (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1
    small onion, chopped (optional)
  • 0.5
    (6 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped (optional)
  • 0.5
    (1 ounce) packet dip mix (I used Knorr's, but can't find it anymore, so I use the Lipton Garlic & Herb now)


  • If using onions, I lightly saute them in a little butter or olive oil to soften.
  • Mix soup/dip mix into softened cream cheese and then add sour cream. (Make sure the cream cheese is very soft, otherwise you will have lumps.).
  • Add onion, water chestnuts and spinach and mix together thoroughly.
  • Refrigerate at least 4 hours. (If you can make this a day or so in advance, the flavors will have time to set well!).
  • Prep time includes refrigeration and servings are a guess!
  • I serve it with my favorite crackers (Triscuits) or toasted bread slices.
