Spinach Pesto Dip

This is the long-lost recipe for spinach dip.  It is THE recipe.  As in, everyone who tries it wants the recipe.  It is the recipe which turned me into a spinach dip eater.  (Let’s forget the fact I was pregnant at the time.)  Prior to that, I wouldn’t touch the stuff.  It comes from Knorr, but an old co-worker named Kim was the one who introduced me to it.


MAKES 3 cups dip
PREP TIME: 10 Minute(s)
  • 1 package Knorr® Cream of Spinach recipe mix
  • 1/2 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 container (16 oz.) sour cream
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted (I use 1/4 c. water chestnuts instead)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves, crushed
PREPARATIONCombine all ingredients. Chill for 2 hours. Serve with your favorite dippers. (My personal favorite being California Sourdough brand bread.  Veggies work well with it too.)
