  • 16 ounces sour cream I used fat-free
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach washed and drained very well and shredded into smaller pieces
  • 1 (2oz) package dry Onion Soup Mix*
  • ½ red onion peeled and finely chopped


  • Mix all ingredients together, adding spinach very last. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. I found that it tastes best if you add make it a couple of hours ahead and let the flavors combine. This tastes great with vegetables and crackers.


*Don’t have an onion soup mix on hand? You can also use these spices in place of the soup mix:
1 tsp dried onion flakes
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp black papper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
