I remember the first time I had this vegetable dip. My aunt served it at a family get-together and told us she got the recipe from the back of a Knorr vegetable mix packet. I was hooked from then on. 

This creamy dip is a go-to appetizer for baby showers, holiday parties, game days, or any time we have a crowd over for a special event. Like my 2-Minute Dill Dip, it’s easy to make and takes less than 10 minutes.

You might have heard it called Knorr’s Spinach Dip, which is also a common name for this easy vegetable dip.  The funny part is that so many people say they don’t like spinach but love this dip! Go figure; they do like spinach.

 Ingredients You’ll Need for the Knorr Vegetable Dip

Ingredients needed to make more vegetable dip
  • Spinach: You will need frozen chopped spinach that you cook, cool and squeeze dry
  • Sour Cream: I suggest using the full-fat sour cream to make your dip extra creamy.
  • Mayonaise: Your favorite classic mayo is needed for this recipe. Do not use sweet sandwich spread such as Miricle Whip. 
  • Knorr® Soup Mix and Recipe Mix Vegetable packet 
  • Water Chestnuts: canned
  • Green Onion

📝 Note: You can find the full recipe with ingredients and measurements in the recipe card located at the bottom of this post.

 Step-by-Step Instructions for Making the Dip

number one
  • Cook the steamer bag of frozen spinach according to the manufacturer’s directions. 
  • Carefully remove the cooked spinach and transfer it to several pieces of dry paper towel. Fold the paper towel over and push on the cooked spinach to absorb the moisture. Depending on how moist your brand of spinach is after cooking, you might need to repeat this step with a fresh paper towel. Place the spinach in a medium-sized bowl.

number two
  • Open the can of water chestnuts and drain. 
  • Slice the chestnuts into small pieces. I like to use my food chopper with the small square blade to get consistently even-sized pieces.

  • Add all the ingredients to the bowl, reserving a tablespoon of the chopped green onion as a topping.

Variations and Additions to Customize Your Dip

This is a basic recipe, but you can be creative and experiment with different ingredients to make the dip your own!

  • Add in some diced red, green, yellow, or orange bell peppers for extra crunch and color.
  • Mix in 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese for a richer flavor.
  • Add some diced pickled jalapenos, aka cowboy candy, or a few shakes of cayenne pepper for a spicy kick.

Serving Ideas

This creamy dip can be served with your favorite crackers, toasted pieces of sourdough baguette slices,  tortilla chips, or a variety of vegetables. Try celery, carrot sticks, or sliced fresh vegetables such as cucumbers, zucchini, squash, broccoli florets, or bell peppers. 

How To Make a Bread Bowl

My favorite way to serve this veggie dip is in a bread bowl, using the hollowed-out pieces of bread as scoops. 

1. Cut off the top of a King’s Hawaiian round loaf.
2. Carefully hollow out the inside, leaving a sturdy shell.
3. Fill the bread bowl with the chilled Knorr Vegetable Dip.
4. Surround it with bread cubes, crackers, or fresh vegetable sticks for dipping.

Storing and Make-Ahead Instructions

Storing the dip: To store the Knorr Vegetable Dip in an airtight container, refrigerate it for up to 3 days. Avoid freezing, as the texture may change, and it would thaw watery. 

Make ahead: To prepare the dip ahead of time for a party, prepare it as directed and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Be sure to stir it well before serving.
