Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip has been around forever
I'm sure most of you have own version
but for those who don't, this is for you

This is the very first thing I ever learned how to make as a grownup
(way back in the 80's)
Believe it or not, I haven't always liked cooking

Shocking, I know

It was basically my "go to" recipe for any gathering

Spinach Dip

1 box frozen chopped spinach
1 - 16 ounce light sour cream
3/4 cup real mayo
1 pkg dried vegetable soup mix (Knorr's)

Thaw spinach by placing it in a colander and running warm to hot water over it
Squeeze excess juice from it
In a bowl, mix the vegetable soup mix with the sour cream and mayo
Add the spinach

and that is it..

There is usually a recipe on the back of the soup packets, but Knorr's calls for water chestnuts, I am not sure why -  I do not like those
It also calls for green onions -which I'm sure give it something more, but really this dip works just like this

I always keep these ingredients in the house,
so I have a quick and easy dip to take to a last minute gathering
or for last minute company
