Knorr Spinach Dip is a classic appetizer or party snack that goes back to the 1970s. It’s easy to make and so delicious! Serve the dip in the bread bowl, surrounded by cubes of bread and/or cut fresh veggies like carrots, cucumbers, celery, and bell peppers.


Units Scale
  • 1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 (16 oz.) container sour cream*
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 (1.4 oz.) package Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix
  • 1 (1 lb.) loaf of round pumpernickel bread**


  1. Set a sieve over a bowl. Add the thawed spinach. Push and squeeze the spinach to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard the liquid. Transfer the spinach to a large bowl.
  2. To the bowl with the spinach add the sour cream, mayonnaise, water chestnuts, and the Knorr Vegetable Recipe Maker. Stir well to mix all the ingredients and also to really separate the spinach and spread it through the dip.
  3. Cover and chill the dip while you make the bread bowl, or for up to 24 hours.
  4. Up to 2 hours before serving, cut the bread loaf into a bread bowl.
  5. Put the bread bowl on a serving platter. Do not discard the bread that you’ve cut out to make the bowl though. Instead, cut it into cubes and arrange them on a platter around the bread bowl.
  6. Stir the dip, and then spoon it into the bread bowl. 
  7. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

*16 ounces of sour cream is the equivalent of 2 cups.

**If you want enough bread to not need veggies for dipping and to just have bread cubes, then get a second loaf of bread. Don’t make it into a bread bowl though, just cut it into cubes to put around the bowl.
