Hard-To-Resist Vegetable Dip

Do you like veggie dip? I admit, I'm not a huge fan of vegetable dips. A friend of mine recently had a Derby Day get-together. There were a variety of party dips, but there was one that I couldn't get enough of...

When I asked for the recipe, she told me that it was on the package of Knorr's Vegetable Recipe Mix!

Of course, I ran out the next day to buy all of the ingredients. The Knorr website says the mix contains "a garden medley blend of carrots, onions, tomatoes, celery root, leeks, cabbage, cauliflower, green peas, and potatoes". Sounds kind of weird for a dip, but you can't "see" all those ingredients - and it really does taste delicious!

Hard-To-Resist Vegetable Dip

1 (10 oz.) pkg. chopped spinach, thawed, cooled, & drained
1 1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. mayo
1 pkg. Knorr's Vegetable Recipe Mix
1 (8 oz.) can water chestnuts, chopped
3 green onions, chopped (optional)

Directions: In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir before serving.

You can fill a bread bowl, or serve it with fresh veggies, pita chips, tortilla chips - whatever you like to use as a dipper!!

TIPS:
  • I hate messing with frozen spinach in the box. Kroger makes a frozen spinach that is in small, round, flat "sections". It's in a plastic bag, so you can take out however many you need, and save the rest for later. Plus it's easy to cut it up into tiny pieces, too. Love it!
  • I made mine with Kraft Real Mayo - I don't know how Miracle Whip works.
  • I left out the green onion.
