spinach dip w/o the soup mix?

g
Georgia Strait Nov 10, 2012 06:57 AM

is there a way to make cold spinach dip (ie not one of the hot cheese spinach dips) without the nasty packaged soup taste?

i suppose less soup mix (ie part of the pkg instead of the entire pkg)

just wondering if anyone had some bright ideas out there

      hi Antilope - have you tried any of these?
      thank you for doing the research
      i just don't like that "soup mix" taste - the processed onion + salt taste i suppose

        Onion powder and dried minced onion are both made from toasted onion; they will generally give you nice toasty flavor without the processed soup mix aftertaste. I might add a little celery seed, plus some garlic and maybe marjoram.
