ingredients to make spinach dip including sour cream, green onions, chopped spinach, mayonnaise, water chestnuts, and vegetable soup mix.

Ingredients and Variations

Dairy – Fat keeps you fuller longer and delivers the best flavors, so choose full-fat versions of sour cream, yogurt, and mayo. Mix and match the ingredients, but keep the same measurements. Cream cheese can be mixed in for an extra creamy dip.

Soup Mix – This copycat recipe is similar to Knorr’s seasoning packet for vegetable dip, so use this recipe here, or feel free to use the original Knorr’s or a store-bought brand.

Water Chestnuts – Water chestnuts stay extra crunchy in spinach dip but they are optional since they are not considered low carb. Swap low carb sliced celery for water chestnuts, and deliver an equal amount of crunch!

Variations – Spinach and artichokes are a perfect pair! Bulk up this recipe and use some canned artichoke hearts. Be sure to drain them and pat them dry before chopping finely. Chopped jalapenos, diced red peppers, and even bacon bits will add a new twist to spinach dip! Blue cheese crumbles and parmesan cheese will also add robust flavor to spinach dip.

For Added Crunch!

  • Other crunchy options include chopped and toasted walnuts, pistachios, or pine nuts. Nut-free options are sunflower or hemp seeds.
  • If using nuts or seeds, try toasting them in a hot and dry saute pan for a few seconds to make them extra crunchy and intensify their flavor!
