Super Easy Spinach Dip

A few weeks ago we had a work picnic that was potluck-style. If you'll recall, I made these. There was a great variety of dishes there, including some chinese desserts that I loved! This spinach dip was one of the "classics", and I definitely had more than my fair share of servings. I love spinach in all forms, but put it in a dip like this or spinach artichoke dip, and I'm extra happy! However, I've never actually made spinach dip before, so I asked my co-worker for her recipe and she told me she just used the one on the Knorr Vegetable Soup mix box. I went to the grocery store that afternoon to grab the ingredients and added this to the list of things I was making for game night!

Knorr's Spinach Dip (aka super easy spinach dip!)

-1 (10 oz) package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed
-1 cup sour cream (I used light)
-1 cup mayo (I used light)
-1 (4 oz) package of Knorr vegetable soup mix (2 come in the box so I'll be making this again soon!)
-1 (8 oz) can water chesnuts, finely chopped
-3 green onions, finely chopped
-Loaf of pumpernickel bread (the grocery store only had rye, so this is what I used)

1. Squeeze spinach until dry.
2. Mix together spinach, sour cream, mayo, and soup mix.
3. Stir in water chestnuts and green onions.
4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (I kept mine in there overnight).
5. Hollow out the loaf of bread and fill with spinach dip.
6. Cut the bread filling into cubes and use as dippers.

**You could also use crackers or vegetables as dippers!
