It is perfect served with my three ingredient beer bread or in my beer bread dip bowl!

I love small plate restaurants, and I love hosting parties where there are tons of dips and snacks. One dip that always makes the cut is this super easy spinach dip! It tastes just like Knorr Spinach Dip, but is so easy to make at home.

CAN YOU USE FRESH SPINACH?

So, I know I’m going too eventually get this question. My answer is: Please don’t. Hahaha!

Yes, you can for sure use fresh spinach and just chop it and saute it down. But it is much more cost and time effective to buy frozen spinach.

I CAN’T FIND FROZEN SPINACH IN A 16 OZ CONTAINER

Then use two 10 ounce containers! You will have more spinach, but this recipe is so forgiving that it will still be perfect.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH DIP

This recipe is so perfect for last minute because you just throw all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine! The longest part of this recipe is the thawing of the spinach.

In a little bread bowl, the Spinach Dip is surrounded by carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers.

WHAT TO EAT WITH SPINACH DIP

I love serving this spinach dip recipe in my Beer Bread Dip Bowl! The insides of it make for perfect dipping. You could also serve it with:

  • My Beer Bread cut up
  • Bell Peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Bagel Chips
  • Toasted Baguette Slices

SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS

This spinach dip is great because it is friendly for so many different diets.

  • Vegetarian Friendly
  • Keto Friendly
  • Glueten Free

HOW LONG DOES SPINACH DIP LAST?

In the refrigerator this should last about 1 week. I have had people ask me if they can freeze this spinach dip recipe and I will tell you that I personally would not. I don’t love freezing recipes that consist a lot of dairy (the sour cream). My vote is that you make a half batch if you don’t think the whole batch will be eaten.

    Never look down on yourself when you get bad or rude comments from people. As an “older” lady I’ve seen a lot over the years and people are just not as gracious as they used to be. So many use social media as a place to vent. Just be positive, kind to those who aren’t and know all of us love your blog and especially the recipes you share.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thank you Kathy!! You are totally right. And yes, dead on about social media!

  3. Julie Heath says

    I don’t know you and have yet to make your bread bowl and dip (although I know I will love both!) but I have read a bit, and that’s all it took, to tell me you are a good soul and lovely person. Wishing you every success and happiness in your life and thanks for your recipes and blogs :-)

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thank you so much Julie!
