Best Spinach Dip Ever


December 24, 2020

This came into my email. I had not thought of the spinach dip for a while and, truth be told, I hadn’t thought of it period, because it has sour cream, like most dips. But I do know it is popular and it might be a nice addition to the snacks while waiting for Christmas dinner, or during a football game. It had a 5-star rating.

Recently I found small round sourdough breads, which might be another idea of several placed around, rather than a large one.

Side note: I was given a recipe for Vanilla Wafer Cake with no flour in it. Just crushed vanilla wafers and I hear it’s really good. It has pecans, coconut, and chocolate chips. If you would like the recipe, let me know. I haven’t made it yet.


1 c. mayonnaise

1 (16 oz ) container sour cream

1 (1.8 oz) package dry leek soup mix

1 (4 oz) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped

½ (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1 (1#) loaf round sourdough bread


In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, dry leek soup mix, water chestnuts, and chopped spinach. Chill in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.

Remove top and interior of sourdough bread. Remove top and interior of the bread bowl, Fill bread bowl with dip. Tear top bread and interior into pieces for dipping


There are many versions of a spinach dip. This is one of many. Google for other versions if you like. This one came from


Merry Christmas. May it include family, friends, good food, and relaxation!
