  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, green onions, parsley, lemon juice, and salt. Mix until well blended, then refrigerate.
  2. Cut a circle out of the top of the bread and scoop out the inside. Tear the inside into pieces for dipping. Spoon the dip into the center of the bread bowl and serve accompanied by the pieces of bread for dipping.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If your bread loaf is large, you may need to double the dip recipe.
  • To heat the dip: wrap the dip-filled loaf in aluminum foil. Place in a 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) oven for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from oven and turn foil back. Use reserved bread, cut into pieces, for dipping.
