You can’t go wrong with a classic recipe and this spinach dip is just that. This appetizer is whipped together in minutes, but don’t let that fool you. It’s delicious, light, and perfect for a crowd.

The bread bowl is a fun way to display this dip, especially if you’re entertaining. You can make one from scratch with our Einkorn Bread Bowl recipe or simply pick up a round, crusty loaf at your local bakery. You’ll want a great bread knife to carve out your bread bowl. We love this double serrated bread knife from Wusthof.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, and the soup mix. Add in spinach, scallions, onions and chestnuts.
  • Hollow out the bread bowl and fill with dip. Place extra bread around the platter and serve. You can also add raw vegetables to the plate.


This recipe can easily be made ahead of time. Just store the dip in the fridge and get the bread bowl ready right before you serve.
