Cold Spinach Dip is made with frozen spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, green onions, water chestnuts and a vegetable soup mix.  It’s super easy to make, lusciously creamy, and ready in 5 minutes!  This is an appetizer we love to serve on holidays while everyone settles in and before we sit down at the table.

My teens have been asking and craving for their all time favorite, my cold spinach dip, and here it is!  A dip so good and unbelievably creamy, as in ‘to-die-for-creamy’ will be the new star grub on your table!

Creamy cold spinach dip is flavorful with a subtle crunchy texture in every bite, making it totally addicting and fun to eat!

There’s no cooking needed with this recipe; only combine all the ingredients with a vegetable soup mix  and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.   Easy-peasy!

Spinach dip has been around for over 3 decades.  Everyone probably has made one similar, but if you haven’t yet… then try this one!   The chopped water chestnuts adds that extra texture of crunch which brings this spinach dip to another level.  A guaranteed success when it goes on your table.


Perfect to make ahead and serve as an appetizer for this holiday weekend.  It is so quick to whip up for guests, you will be amazed!  Cold Spinach Dip is an exciting dip that everyone will enjoy.  They may even ask you for the recipe.

Here’s a Tip:  In the morning take out the packages of frozen spinach and leave on your counter to thaw.  When you return in the afternoon, just open and squeezed out the excess water.  Mix with the rest of ingredients, refrigerate, then serve.  Takes only 5 minutes to make!

Try it!  Like I said, it’s simple and super easy!  So addicting, it’s definitely a winner !

Serve this dip chilled with slices of  crusty bread, pretzel chips, or crackers.
Enjoy how quickly it will disappear!
