Ok I am about to tell you one of my “thrifty secrets”…. so listen up ūüôā

Dips of any kind happen to be one of my favorite treats to make for a party or social event. ¬†They feed a large group, and are budget¬†friendly¬†especially¬†when you use great ¬†resources¬†like WinCo’s bulk Bins.

For this dip you will need 3 tablespoons of Winco’s ¬†DryVegetable Soup base (locally it was #2172) sold in their bulk bins. ¬†I was able to get enough for 3 batches of dip for only $1.03 ( or .34 a batch).

You will need

  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach
  • 3 tablespoons Dry Vegetable soup
  • 1 cup Mayo
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Something¬†to dip- Bread, crackers, Vegetables¬†etc.

You can buy the frozen cooked spinach but I prefer to steam my own.  I think the fresh steamed spinach just taste better, normally one bag will cook down to about 1/2 cup.  Chop before you steam it, and cook for 5-8 minutes till tender.

Once you have steamed your spinach, drain and while it is STILL HOT ¬†in your pot add your 3 tablespoons Dry Soup mix. ¬†This will help to soften and reconstitute¬†the vegetables. ¬† Put the lid on and leave them for 20 minutes or so…. ¬†Then put them in a bowl and ¬†refrigerate¬†till cool.

Once the spinach has cooled add to mayo, sour cream, garlic and salt & pepper.

Cover and return to refrigerator for 4 hours to let flavors blend before serving. Yields 2 1/2 cups dip

Hope you enjoy this Thrifty Tip

Never would have thought to use bulk for the soup mix. I always use the Knorr mix, which is more spendy. Thanks.


Sounds delish! I love spinach dip.
