My parents live just about an hour from my home but with all of our busy schedules, we don’t visit as often as I would like. When we get to spend time there we usually plan a family meal together. I have a few different favorite dishes from my mom’s kitchen but something I always look forward to is her spinach dip. She just recently shared with me just how easy it is to create our favorite family appetizer. She makes her spinach dip with Knorr Vegetable recipe mix and follows the quick recipe on the back of the package. All these years I had no idea how quick and easy it was to make the dip. This week I put a twist on the recipe and added extra vegetables in the dip. The fresh produce from Walmart added so much flavor and it made me happy knowing my family was getting an extra serving of vegetables.
Recently while shopping at Walmart I went to the produce section to browse healthy food options for my daughter’s packed school lunches. Not only did I find the fruits and vegetables I was looking for, I also discovered just how fresh and fully stocked Walmart keeps their produce section.
I thought about my mom’s spinach dip and knew my family would enjoy the tasty appetizer with dinner. I browsed the produce section to find extra vegetables to add to the Knorr spinach dip recipe.
I came home with fresh celery and tomatoes to add to the dip.
My mom completely follows the Knorr spinach dip recipe but I decided to omit the water chestnuts and green onions. I also added a generous amount of the produce I purchased from Walmart.
- 1 package Knorr vegetable recipe mix
- 1 cup Hellmann’s or Best Foods mayonnaise
- 1 container reduced fat sour cream
- 1 package (10 oz) frozen spinach, cooked and drained
- fresh tomatoes and celery
- bread bowl for serving
Prep your vegetables by chopping the tomatoes and celery.
Mix all ingredients together in large bowl and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.
Serve the spinach dip in a bread bowl. Bread and fresh vegetables are perfect for dipping.
My family loved the added flavor from the fresh produce and this appetizer didn’t last long.
Would your family notice if you added extra vegetables to a dish they already love?
