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