Sharing is caring!

This Easy 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 chilled dip so good and unbelievably creamy, it is to-die-for-creamy!

Let this one be the new star grub on your table!

This one is served chilled like our other favorites,  Carrot and Spinach Dip and our Best Loaded BLT Dip. 

Easy cold spinach dip is flavorful with a subtle crunchy texture in every bite, making it totally addicting and fun to eat! Both of them are terrific.

Best of all?  No cooking required with this recipe! 

You only need to combine all the ingredients with a vegetable soup mix and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.


Our easy cold spinach dip has been around for decades.  Everyone probably has made one similar, but if you haven’t yet… then try this one!

Here’s a GREAT TIP:  

  • In the morning, take out the packages of frozen spinach and leave them on your counter to thaw.  When you return in the afternoon, just open and squeezed out the excess water.  Mix with the rest of the ingredients, refrigerate, then serve.  It only takes only 5 minutes to make!

Try it!  As 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, crackers, or celery and carrot sticks!
Enjoy how quickly it will disappear!
