Cold Spinach Dip -no soup mix added

Do you hear the buzz in the air? Can you feel the excitement? Yep, it's that time of year again folks, football season! Time to shake the dust off of your team jersey, break out the red solo cups and find your favorite party recipes... As a true dip-o-holic I'm always looking for new things to try and in my book this Cold Spinach Dip is pretty darn close to health food... well, for a dip any way:@) You could really taste the spinach and garlic.
Thoughts: This really does need time to mingle in the fridge, give it at least 1-2 hours. To bump the flavor up a bit I'll be using a seasoned salt the next time, I'm leaning towards Lawry's Chile and Garlic:@) They wrote the recipe to be served in a hollowed out bread bowl and I'll bet that's very nice. Rachel suggested adding a little pimento, that sounds like a tasty option too.

This should be a very interesting year as a Philadelphia Eagles fan-bring it on!
And Earl says:
Amen Earl, amen.

Cold Spinach Dip-from
1 large clove garlic
1/2 C chopped scallion (white portion only)-I used sweet onion
10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained really well
1 C sour cream
1/2 to 1 C mayonnaise-I used 2 Tblsp
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 dash hot sauce or more to taste
1/2 tsp salt-I suggest using your favorite seasoned salt and you may want to add a little more
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
paprika for sprinkling on top-ooops, I forgot this for the pic
  1. Put garlic and onion in food processor and mince.
  2. Add everything except paprika and process until smooth.
  3. Can serve in a bread bowl or with with chips and veggies.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. Your dip looks so good, Lynn! The chips look great too. For some reason, I am addicted to potato chips, Fritos, and sun chips! lol

  2. I love this soup-free spinach dip! Let's hope our teams do well this year!!!!

  3. Love that your dip is soup-free Lynn. I'm raising a chip full of dip to Earl.

  4. It looks like your sidekick, Earl, is ready to pig out on some dip, Lynn!! The dip sounds so good and perfectly creamy with the lessened amount of mayo, too, and it's the right color to cheer on your favorite team. I always enjoy reading a post with your yummy dips.
    Happy Labor Day!

  5. This sounds so tasty Lynn! I'm a potatoholic and I think your dip would make a great topping for potato skins too :)

  6. I'm a dip-aholic myself Lynn, if footballs on, there must be dips! I actually prefer cold spinach dip to hot, and yours looks tasty! Amen Earl, I'm with you buddy!


Thanks for stopping by!
