Put the frozen spinach in a colander and run water over it until it is thawed out (or put it in the refrigerator ahead of time to thaw it out). While you are doing this, cut the top of the bread off to make a bowl. Chop up the top of the bread and save it to use for the dip. Scoop out the bottom part of the bread to make a place for the dip. Wring out the spinach with your hands to get out all the water. Mix all the ingredients together (except the bread) and put in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Fill the bread bowl with the dip and serve with the bread, crackers or vegetables.

  • This is a great dip.....but to get even a better flavor use a bag of fresh spinach. Chop up well....unbelievable taste.

  • This recipe has been on back of Knorrs Vegetable soup for years and is the best recipe. The other secret is in the squeezing out all of the water in spinach. I have people that ask me to make and I tell them it's on the box and they say it's not the same. It's getting the water out of spinach, you will always get asks to make again. I use chives in place of green onions, for onion sensitive eaters.

  • I use this receipe and add some cayenne pepper to taste. It gives it a little bite.
