How could I have forgotten this one? a staple of every party of the mid-eighties. This is from an ad in Bon Appetit December 1986.
- 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 1.5 cups sour cream
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 packet Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix
- 1 x 8 oz can water chestnuts, finely chopped
- 3 green onions, finely chopped
Mix the whole lot up well, chill for a couple of hours, so that the soup can dissolve into the dip. There was something about this one that was really yummy. The salt and MSG, I expect. You could easily make this healthier, with a low-salt low-fat soup mix, and low-fat fromage frais or similar instead of the cream and mayonnaise.
