  1. In a large bowl, mix together the spinach, cream cheese, water chestnuts, vegetable soup mix, mayonnaise and Cheddar cheese until well blended. Form into a ball, and roll in chopped walnuts. If the mixture is too soft to form a ball, refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set. Wrap the cheese ball in plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight to blend the flavors before serving with your favorite crackers.

I made this for our Christmas Pokeno and it was sooo good! I shaped it into a Christmas tree and covered it with parsely flakes, and nuts for the string of lights, and red bell peppers for the ornaments. I was afraid it would be too soft to hold the X-mas tree shape but it held up beautifully!! I will be making this every X-mas! Thanks!!

Wonderful appetizer! It's so easy to make and makes a great presentation! I used reduced fat cream cheese, Hellman's light mayo, and reduced fat Cheddar cheese so it was light on the waistline as well...but you could never tell by the taste! I also used Knorr vegetable soup mix and you could easily sub green onions for the water chestnuts. I served this with Roasted Vegetable Ritz Crackers and it was gone in no time! Thanks for great recipe SARAHB2!

Thanks for all the nice reviews on this recipe. This is a recipe that I made up by modifying the popular spinach dip a few years ago, it was successful with the people that I served it to, so I thought that I would publish the recipe on this website. This recipe can be varied so much using ingredients that you like the most. I use either cream cheese or the 1/3 less fat cream cheese or sometimes a mixture of both and have had great results. I also have sometimes varied the shredded cheese, depending on my mood ( I have used cheddar, and co-jack with great results as well) I usually use Knorr's Vegetable soup packet (so whatever size that comes in is what I use) I also generally use pecans when I make it. (When I sent the recipe in for publishing, I wasn't specific enough...I just said 1/2 cup chopped nuts...pecans, walnuts or even toasted slivered almonds might work.) Like I said, this is the type of recipe that you can vary the ingredients to come up with something that is entirely your own...that is the great thing about cooking!
