Spinach dip is a dip that uses the vegetable spinach as a primary ingredient. Frozen spinach is often used in its preparation. Additional primary ingredients may include: mayonnaise, cream cheese, sour cream and cheese. Slow cookers may be used to prepare the dip.
Examples of accompaniments to spinach dip include: bread, crackers and chips. Many casual restaurant chains offer spinach dip on their menus. Several commercially prepared, mass-produced spinach dips are sold in grocery stores and supermarkets. The dish is commonly eaten as an hors d'oeuvre, appetizer, or party platter.
The dip is well-suited to a simple presentation, being served in a small bowl or large ramekin. A bread bowl prepared using hollowed-out bread that is filled with spinach dip is another method of presentation. Spinach dips are sometimes served at a hot temperature.
Variations include spinach-artichoke dip with artichoke hearts utilized as the other primary ingredient. Ingredient variations may include beans. Some recipes use spinach dip as a filling within other foods.
