For some reason, I did not have high hopes for this recipe. But I was wrong! This is simple, QUICK, delicious, and CHEAP! All things that I love!! I followed the recipe exactly as-is. I used Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix. MMMM! It does not have to set very long for the flavors to marry. I was worried that the green onions would make it too oniony. They did not! In fact I wished I'd added more. They're great chopped in big pieces. I put it all in a pumpernickel round, and served it with the cut up pieces of pumpernickel, as well as some sliced french bread that I drizzled olive oil over, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and toasted in the oven very lightly. I also served it with tortilla chips. It was all delicious, and this is something I'm DEFINITELY adopting as my new never-fail. So cool! Edit 3-5-08: I started doubling the spinach, and like it even more that way! Makes it more of the typical consistency I was used to. Also, I tried it with the Knorr Leek Soup instead of their vegetable, and didn't care for it, so it may be an acquired taste. I'm going to stick w/the vegetable.


Love this recipe!! One of the few that I leave as is. It's been a Christmas tradition in my house for as long as I can remember. We also serve it in a hollowed out king's hawaiian bread. The bread's sweet flavors work well with the dip. One hint so you don't end up with soggy bread is to hollow out the bread so that it perfectly fits a paper or plastic bowl and then stick the bowl in the bread and fill with dip. This way you'll be able to save the dip and the bread when the party is over.


Very easy! BUT I would certainly reduce the mayo and sour cream. I used about half of what was called for and it was plenty creamy!!
