"I've been making this dip for years (same ingredients at least) and absolutely love it (especially on game day). To make it even easier, you can use frozen, chopped, spinach that you've thawed and drained."

"Very good dip!

I wilted the spinach stove-top, since I prefer not to nuke food.
I served the dip with sliced red & yellow bell peppers, cucumbers and baby carrots. It made a beautifully colorful platter."
