Spinach and onion crudite dip
This savory spinach dip will make your crudite platter disappear in minutes.
Around this time of year, everyone’s looking for those easy crowd-pleasers, whether it’s for a holiday party or Super Bowl snacks. This fabulous spinach dip is all that – easy to whip up, universally loved flavors, and great with crackers, veggies, or smeared on fresh, home-baked bread.
(Fun fact: the studio execs who chose spinach as Popeye’s iron-rich food of choice were under the impression – as was most of America at that time – that each 100 gram serving had 35 mg of iron. Real numbers: spinach has approximately 3.5 mg of iron per 100 gram serving. And since it’s non-heme iron, it’s actually not absorbed very well. But spinach is still loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants – so keep at it!)
- 10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed
- 1 1/2 cup olive oil mayo (reduced fat, can use vegan mayo)
- 2 cloves garlic
- Handful of chives
- 1 packet onion soup mix/dip
Combine all ingredients in medium bowl. Use an immersion blender to thoroughly blend all ingredients.
Serve with a crudite platter, pita chips, crackers, or as a tasty condiment for any type of sandwich.
