That is a sure fire crowd pleaser and it doesn’t get much easier as far as prep goes. Come on in and I’ll share this classic spinach dip recipe for your holiday, game day, and small group socials!
Do you remember this one? That old classic Knorr Spinach Dip. It must have been at every single potluck, and food centered function that I can remember. It’s a classic, and like a classic, it holds strong and simply delicious. It’s still perfect for every single party, today.
