Does anyone have a recipe for Spinach Dip that's cold. Trader Joe's makes one, and I know that there's the dip that you can use Vegetable soup mix but I don't like pre-mixed things, I want to make an all nautral one. Does anyone have a recipe for a cold sour cream spinach dip?
1 medium container of sour cream
2 tblsp onlive oil mayo (optional)
2-3 cups fresh spinach steam on stove top!
1/2 can of water chestnuts (sliced)
1 large clove garlic (through garlic press)
half a peeled carrot grated
dash of pepper
put sour cream in larger bow along with mayo (set aside)
steam spinach over stove top drain and shock in cold water and ice cubes (so it keeps its pretty bright green color) add to sour cream and mayo mix grate carrot over mixture add the remaining ingredients and chill for 2-3 hours so flavors marry . serve in sourdough bowl warmed in oven or as desired
From a '70s-era alumnae cookbook, when spinach dip was wildly poplular and "alumnae" was used:
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 c sour cream
1/2 c mayo
1/2 c chopped parsley
1/2 c sliced scallions
1/2 tsp Beau Monde (a Spice Islands thing; probably could
just use celery salt)
1/2 tsp chopped dill
salt & pepper
Cook & drain spinach. Mix all else in a bowl, add spinach, mix thoroughly. Cover & chill overnight.
I make this pretty much as written (more herbs, usually) and although no one comments on it much, it's always gone quickly. I think the dill is important.
Uh-oh-- post from 2007. Oh well.
Currently toasting finely diced onion because of this thread. I'm not even sure I can get soup powder here (Paris) not that I want to, anyway.
Realize I would miss the onion toastiness so figured to give it a shot.
