(don't look for a picture. You know what spinach dip looks like!)
I got this recipe for Spinach Dip before Spinach Dip was cool -- in 1985! I served gallons of it at an auction where I was the volunteer kitchen help -- and I HAD to have the recipe. Of course, years later, we discovered a way with Knorr Soup, and no one made it FreSH way any more.
But I do.
I think it's so good, I submitted it the other day to a request from gglutenfreelife.tv. Little did I know it was a contest....But yes, this is the dip referred to at the end of the Chicken Wings video on gflife.tv (click on the video...I'm mentioned way at the end....)
Anyway. With Super Bowl Sunday coming up, not to mention all those spring and summer occasions, try this. You do not have to use the packaged GF soup mix any more.
No soup mix for me!
2 boxes of frozen spinach thawed and well drained (squeezed dry.)
Even the Barefoot Contessa uses boxed spinach, folks!
2 cup sour cream (light OK) (Dairy Substitute OK)
1 cup mayonnaise (regular is better, I use Duke's)
½ tsp lemon juice
½ small onion, shredded ( I use 3 T. (or more) Penzeys freeze fried shallots)
2T finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
2T chopped chives
2 green onions, chopped (I forgot this in my recipe submission!)
2 T. chopped tarragon
2T fresh dill
salt, pepper TO TASTE
1 T. garlic powder ( I use Mrs. Dash Garlic and herb, which is GF)
I can water chestnuts drained and coarsely chopped
Mix in advance, and let sit at least two hours.
Much love, and Happy Super Bowl!
