I know what you’re thinking… Spinach Dip? Is she going to make a jello salad next?
Maybe- don’t be judgy.
My updated version of the classic “Vegetable soup mix” dip adds a punch of flavor by adding 2 heaping teaspoons of fresh horseradish and three spices including a bit of cayenne pepper. I also use fresh green onions, mayonnaise, sour cream and greek yogurt for an extra creamy and super tangy dip. Give my version a try and you will never eat that same old tired spinach dip again.
