I have a group of the best ladies a small town girl could ask for! (Hi Girls!) We get together very regularly whether it be for crafting, book club, birthdays or just a yummy pot luck! There is one common trait to every event, yummy food!!
The food at these events are my Canadian version of the "southern comfort food". Just thinking about all those yummy dishes makes me hungry and smile!
When we all get together we always try to coordinate who is bringing what. However, after years of practise we kind of all can guess who is going to bring what. I think if you asked any of these ladies the one thing they would say I ALWAYS bring is....SPINACH DIP!
I was telling Stacy and Jill over the weekend that I was thinking of writing a spinach dip post. They laughed at me and thought it was silly to post a recipe that "woman have been making for like 80 years." Thanks guys! ha ha!
But I'm writing it anyways, because in my opinion I am kind of a spinach dip expert. You never know who may need a good appetizer recipe! There are certain things that I do to make the dip just right. I am proud to say that I can make a mean spinach dip. As in yummy, not actually angry....
Here is the recipe:
- 1 package of frozen chopped spinach- thawed and re-chopped (the less "stringy" the better!)
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 1 cup of Miracle whip
- 1 package of Knorr Vegetable soup mix
- Bread, crackers of veggies for dipping
1. Take thawed, chopped spinach and place in colander. Using a fork press as much of the water out as you can.
2. Once you get most of the water out re-chop your spinach. The less "stingy" the spinach is, the better it is for dipping!
3. Place in a bowl and add your sour cream and Miracle Whip.
4. Cover and place somewhere refrigerated until you are ready to serve.
5. Meanwhile, chop any veggies or bread. My personal favorite is pumpernickel or sour dough bread.
5. Right before you are ready to serve mix in your soup mix.
** This step is crucial, if you add the soup mix too early before serving the dip gets too thick!
6. Serve and enjoy!
So, there is the recipe that many have heard of and steps on how I prepare mine. Nothing fancy but always a crowd pleaser!
