What a fantastic dip! I've enjoyed a few recipes of spinach dip over the years, but this is the best I have ever tasted. Although I was a little hesitant to use leek soup mix over the standard vegetable soup mix called for in most recipes, I plowed through and just went for it. And so glad I did - the end result is a creamy, non-bitey flavour that went over far better than I ever expected. I don't think I'll use any other spinach dip recipe again! Also, definitely use mayonnaise (Hellman's) and not the miracle whips of the world, as it really does make a huge difference. Such a tasty dip - you've got to try it . . . !!
I needed to make a spinach dip for our monthly teacher appreciation party; not one for dips--or anything laden with sour cream or mayo--I turned to allrecipes for some help. Unfortunately, this is not the "Best Spinach Dip Ever". The recipe, when followed to the letter, yields a dip that tastes more of sour cream and mayo with a little spinach garnish. Luckily, I had more spinach on hand, but even the extra spinach could not cut down on the overpowering sour cream and mayo flavors. Perhaps that is the intention, but I have tasted store bought spinach dip that greatly trumps this one. If you are looking for a spinach dip that is heavy on the sour cream and mayo flavors and lacking in any others, this is the dip for you. Otherwise, I would try one of the modified versions or another recipe altogether.
This dip is excellent! I got many compliments that it was indeed the best spinach dip they ever had. I did make some substitutions though. Instead of the leek soup mix,I used: 1 large (or 2 small) garlic cloves, minced 1/4 onion, chopped fine approx. 1 1/4 Tablespoons Janes Original Mixed-Up Salt (or to taste) Also, I used an entire 10 ounce package of frozen spinach. I think it needs the extra spinach to have some in every bite. It turned out fantastic. Several people even asked me for the recipe. This will definitely be filed in my 'Quick Party Dips' section.
My mom made a similar recipe when I was a kid & served it in the middle of a loaf of King's Hawaiian bread (after you cut out a hole). I made this recipe the other week for a fimaily function and everyone loved it! My husband who claimed that he never really like spinach dip ended up eating half of it! I think it really must be the "best spinach dip ever!"
I printed this recipe ages ago, but never had the need for the dip until recently. BOY am I glad I made it! I have now taken it to two parties and have been asked for the recipe by so many people. They are surprised at how easy it is. The leek soup mix is the key ingredient, and tastes so much better than the vegetable (IMHO). I used a full 10 oz. package of spinach (it needs it for texture), and I doubled the recipe. It works best if you squeeze as much liquid out of the spinach as you can. If not it could turn out too runny. Overall, it's quick, easy, delicious, and will become a staple in my entertaining!
