Creamy Herbed Spinach Dip

This spinach dip has quickly become my favorite dip to bring to parties or large gatherings. I brought this to our low key, relaxed New Year’s Eve celebration. I love the little kick of the Tabasco sauce. I first saw this recipe on an America’s Test Kitchen show on PBS. I loved how simple the recipe was. I would direct you to the actual recipe on the website but you have to be a member to view it. I am not a member yet because I don’t use their website often enough, even though I would love to have one of their cookbooks!

I don’t have a picture to show you because I forgot to take one at the get together! Oops! I’m pretty sure you know what Spinach Dip looks like though!

10 oz frozen chopped Spinach

1/2 cup Mayonaise

1/2 cup Sour Cream

2 TB chopped shallots

1 TB chopped fresh dill leaves

1/2 cup packed flat-leaf parsley leaves

1 small garlic clove-minced

1/4 tsp Tabasco

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 medium red pepper, chopped (I omitted)


Thaw spinach for 3 minutes at 40% power. Squeeze partially thawed spinach of excess water through a clean tea towel. Put all ingredients into a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Dip can be refrigerated for 2 days.

Serve with pita chips.
