Spinach Dip

I began making spinach dip for bridal showers for our nephews and their fiances.  It can be made and placed in an Hawaiian Bread bowl or a pretty bowl.   You can buy an Hawaiian Bread Loaf at your favorite grocery store.  To create an Hawaiian Bread bowl, scoop out the bread in the middle and leave an edge that's thick enough that it will stand.  You can now fill it with Spinach Dip.  You can tear off a piece of the Hawaiian Bread for dipping or use Frito Scoops.    The Spinach Dip is liked so much by our family that I always made it for the Herring Family 4th of July BBQ's, too.

                                                                  Spinach Dip

1 - 10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
1 - 16 oz. sour cream
1 cup Helllman's mayonnaise
1 pkg. Knorr Vegetable Soup, Dip & Recipe Mix
1 - 8 oz. can water chestnuts, drained & chopped
3 green onions, chopped

In a medium bowl, stir spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise, soup mix, water chestnuts, & green onions until well mixed.  Cover; chill for 2 hrs. to blend flavors

Stir well before serving.  If desired, spoon into round bread bowl.  Serve with Frito Scoops.

To thaw spinach, I place it in a bowl.  As it thaws, there is a good amount of water.  I use paper towels to soak up the water.  I press down on the spinach with a paper towel and the towel absorbs the water.  You will have to do this several times.
