A creamy and addictive dip for any party! The secret flavors of this spinach dip is from the inclusion of French onion soup mix and allowing the flavors to meld and mellow with the cheese, sour cream and mayo.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 oz / 280 g) frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup (4 oz or 100 g) shredded Swiss or Sharp White Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream - I use full fat as reduced fat is too liquidy
  • ½ cup mayonnaise - full fat
  • 3 green onions , diced
  • ½ package Knorr French onion soup mix (or Lipton brand)
  • 1 loaf French bread (sliced) or crackers or crudités

Instructions

  1. Squeeze excess water out of the spinach leaves with a few sheets of kitchen roll or clean kitchen towel. If spinach is still frozen, defrost until running cold water and then squeeze out excess water.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, soup mix, and green onions until well mixed.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours (better overnight) to blend flavors. Stir well. Garnish with grated cheese and a sprinkle of green onions.
  4. Serve with sliced French bread, crackers or crudités.
