I went to a friends pot luck - BBQ a few weeks back and enjoyed some really great food. One of the guests, a friend of mine named Sunny, always comes with many wonderful yummy dishes to share. One of the items she brought to this BBQ - I almost made myself sick from as it was SO good, I couldn't stop eating it. It was a spinach dip with some fresh French bread for dipping. This dip not only looked really pretty and impressive in the pretty serving dish, but it tasted so good!!
I loved the texture as its creamy yet has a bit of a crunch (chopped water chestnuts). I had to inquire about this wonderful dip and was shocked to find out it was as simple as it was. Sunny said she got the recipe from the back of a Lipton's vegetable soup box. How great is that....its good and easy to make! Recently I went to the store and I picked up some Vegetable Soup mix as well as the rest of the ingredients and whipped up some for the family to enjoy. Its a great dip and one that I will defiantly make again!!!! Thanks Sunny for another wonderful recipe!!!!

"Perfect Party Spinach Dip"
1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Vegetable Soup Mix
1 (8oz) sour cream
1 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise
1 pkg (10oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 can (8oz) water chestnuts, drained and chopped
In medium bowl, combine all ingredients; chill 2 hours. Serve in a pretty dish with your favorite dippers.... like fresh French or Italian bread, crackers, cheese & or assorted veggies. ENJOY!!!
( A note for strict South Beachers: Some people do not recommend Liptons Soup mix due to the high sodium and such in the packets. Others feel that if its not indulged in often than its not a problem. Personally I don't think it would really be that bad if you had this once in a great while and balance it out with loads of veggie dippers. Another suggestion I'd offer is to share this dip with friends and family and not eat it all, like I almost did...ha ha.)
