Herbed Spinach Dip

Just look at this amazing spinach dip…I could not get over the beautiful bright green color. It almost looks more like a pesto than a spinach dip. That is because this dip is brimming with tons of spinach. I made this appetizer for dinner guests and served it in a Hawaiian bread bowl. It was a huge hit! This quick and easy appetizer only takes about 15 minutes to make, so why leave your guests waiting? Get in there and make this delicious dip! πŸ™‚

Printer Friendly Version

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 medium scallions, white parts only, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and diced fine

Directions:

  1. Thaw spinach at room temperature for 1 1/2 hours or place in microwave for 3 minutes at 40 percent power, until edges are thawed but not warm. Break into chunks and squeeze excess water from partially frozen spinach.
  2. In a food processor, add spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, scallions, dill, parsley, garlic, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Process until creamy and smooth, about 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and stir in red bell pepper. If not serving right away, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

    I made a variation of this exact recipe for Christmas Day and it was absolutely delicious. I added some Worcestershire sauce and it added a nice savory taste.

    I love love love using herbs this time of year just because they remind me of summer. I copied this down and will use it when I get some spinach! It seems like it would make a nice spread for a sandwhich too.
