Popeye says eat your spinach!

And trust me, once you give this recipe a whirl, you'll gobble it right up! It's such an easy recipe to put together that it will absolutely be a staple in our home for party food.

I found this recipe on and adapted it slightly. I changed up the amount of mayonnaise and added in a block of cream cheese for some added texture and it worked beautifully! I also upped the amount of spinach to ensure that Popeye would be satisfied with the amount of spinach in each bite!

I served my dip with a crudite of veggies and some butter crackers and it was devoured! If you're not an onion fan, you may not dig this dip, as you do use leek soup mix. Other than that, it's a hit from start to finish!


Spinach Dip



3/4 cup mayonaise

16 ounces sour cream

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 package dry leek soup mix

4 ounce can water chestnuts, drained and rough chopped

10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained


In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, dry leek soup mix, water chestnuts and spinach.

Chill in the refrigerator overnight and serve the next day in a bread bowl.
