Easy spinach dip
Spinach dip is a true party food classic. You know when you bring spinach dip to a party, it will always be eaten.
The first time I made spinach dip was right after college. I couldn’t believe how EASY it was! And, I love that this is a make-ahead party appetizer.
I’ve made spinach dip SO many times now, and in so many different ways over the years. But this recipe is ALWAYS the crowd fave.
What is spinach dip made of?
This recipe is dairy-free, but if you don’t have to worry about dairy, you could easily substitute full dairy items.
My fave dairy-free spinach dip recipe includes:
- frozen spinach (of course!)
- dairy-free sour cream
- dairy-free vegan mayo
- water chestnuts
- packet of Knorr vegetable dip mix
- salt and pepper
That’s it! The use of Knorr vegetable dip mix is a switch from the leek soup packet I used to always use. I haven’t been able to find the leek soup mix anywhere locally, although you can still buy it online.
However, since switching, I’ve discovered that I love the added textures and depth of flavor that the vegetable dip mix adds to this easy spinach dip!
What goes well with spinach dip?
- Cut vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli, red peppers, green peppers, celery, sliced radishes
- Crackers (including rice crackers if you are gluten-free)
- Sliced baguette or other crusty bread
- Potato chips
How long does spinach dip last in the refrigerator?
MAKE-AHEAD TIP: You can make this spinach dip up to two days before a party. However, I prefer to make it the night before a party for more freshness.
LEFTOVERS: Keep any leftover spinach dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
