I could eat this stuff by the truckload… I love it!!

I make it all the time because it’s super simple and always a HUGE hit!!  I got this recipe from my sister, who got it from her friend, who got it from her aunt’s second cousin’s coworker.  I guess what I’m saying is… I don’t know the origin but I got it from my sister.. and then I lightened it up a bit!

Spinach dip is often served in a “bread bowl” which is all fine and dandy.. but I like to put it in it’s own bowl.  This way I can just put a little out at a time because mayo sitting around in the sun for hours just doesn’t sit well with me (ok, it doesn’t usually last that long).  When the first little bowl is empty, I just replace it!  Or I serve it in a bread bowl.. :)

  1. I thought the recipe originated on the back of the Knorr vegetable soup mix (dry packet). I usually cut up my thawed & strained spinach with kitchen shears ( just makes it less stringy).

  2. Can you use fat free mayonnaise?

  3. What kind of greek yogurt do you use

  4. Better yet, use Fresh Baby Soinach chopped up. I never use the frozen now after tasting the difference.
