Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe

This Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe is the classic version you know and love! Cold and creamy, it’s so easy to make and tastes even better than you remember. 

When was the last time you had Knorr Spinach Dip?

If you were me, it would have been about 10 years ago at a birthday party in Wisconsin. Your aunt would have made it and brought it along, and you would have briefly considered commandeering the bowl and hiding in a closet somewhere to eat it all yourself.

Knorr makes the best packet dip mix I’ve ever had, and really the only one that is a contender on my shopping list.

And this Knorr Spinach Dip recipe will taste even better than you remember!

Start with a creamy base of mayonnaise and sour cream, them mix in chopped water chestnuts (optional but delicious), scallions, and the Knorr packet.

While that blends for a few minutes, get your spinach ready. If it’s frozen, defrost it in the microwave. Drain out any excess water, then squeeze it in a clean kitchen towel, wringing out as much liquid as possible (while holding it over your kitchen sink).

How Much Fresh Spinach is 10 oz Frozen?

To substitute fresh spinach for the frozen spinach, use a pound of fresh spinach leaves. Place the spinach in a large dry skillet with 1/4 cup water and cook it down (basically steaming it). Then, transfer it to a clean kitchen towel and squeeze it dry.

I like it serve it in a bread bowl with lots of fresh veggies on the side or with lots of toasted baguette slices.

    I’ve been using this recipe for years! Best recipe ever!! I use a food processor with fresh spinach. Turns it a nice minty green color. :)5 stars

    1. Meggan

      Wow, thank you so much Tom! I’m glad you like it! :D -Meggan

  2. Kim

    I like this Spinach Dip  recipe  But I  add some cream cheese to it 😁

  3. Sometimes it’s by the gravy mixes!

  4. Tamara Silverthorne

    Would knorr onion soup mix too? Or would it throw the flavour off too much

    1. meggan

      Hi Tamara, when are you going to make this? I might have time to test it and let you know. If I test it tomorrow and report back, is that soon enough? -Meggan

  5. Carrie Bonhage

    This is the Knorr re ipe I use too, but I add chopped marinated artichoke hearts and a little bit of Ranxh seasoning packet to taste. Spoo yummy!5 stars

  6. Barbara Navarro

    Can you prepare the hot spinach version a day in advance?

  7. Izzy

    Can this be made with frozen WHOLE spinach? My store was all out of chopped

    1. meggan

      Yes! I would just chop it. If you have a food processor, throw it in there when it’s thawed. Pulse it a few times. Or, you can chop it by hand too, no problem. Thanks!

  8. Takia Raneri

    For a healthy twist use Chobani Nonfat Great Yogurt instead of Sour Cream & Light mayonnaise.

  9. Marcy

    Can you freeze the spinach dip??5 stars

    1. meggan

      Good question! While you could, I think the sour cream and/or mayonnaise would become watery and/or separate. So I don’t really recommend it. I think you’d ultimately be disappointed with the result! But great question.

  10. Emily

    I cannot find that mix either!
    Could you use Lipton veggitable mix instead??

    1. Laura Madsen

      That’s the one.

  11. Millie Thompson

    ALL I want to know is why can I not find Knorr Soup Mix in the grocery Store. I do not need any more recipes for Spinach Dip…right now anyway. Are you still making the Knorr Soup Mix? I would appreciate a suggestion for where I can locate the Soup Mix. Thank you. Millie Thompson.

  12. Angel

    In my store, it’s located with the salad dressings.  Just past them is a section that carries packaged, dry salad dressing mixes. Hope this helps. 

  13. Millie Thompson

    I love this recipe but I have a problem….I look for the Soup Mix and the stores don’ t seem to carry it up here in my store I shop with . Any suggestions. Millie Thompson

    1. Charlene

      Use the knorr cream of leek soup mix. It is a much better flavour.5 stars

    We like to add Pimentos to our dip. It gives it a better flavor and it’s festive for Christmas!!! :)5 stars

  15. Laura Madsen
