My mother-in-law has taught me A LOT about cooking, some good, some bad, but I am very thankful for every tidbit of information she has shared with me over the years. I have eaten things at her house that I would have NEVER eaten before if it wasn't for her, and that is such a good thing. One of the things that she taught me was a little pearl of wisdom that makes so much sense. If you purchase a food item, and it comes with a recipe, it usually is really good. Why? Because the food manufacturer wants to show off their product in a recipe, and isn't going to give you a mediocre recipe, they are going to give you a really good one. Now this doesn't apply all the time, I have tried some that were gross, but on a whole, the majority are fabulous! That brings us to the recipe below. I had never had a really good cold spinach dip, until I had it for the first time at my in-laws. Low and behold, it wasn't a family recipe or secret, but rather the recipe off the back of a soup package mix. So if you are looking for a great appetizer during this holiday season, pick up a pack of Knorr Vegetable Soup, Dip & Recipe Mix, usually found in the soup section, somewhere around the packaged stock, and whip up this delicious dip. I think I'll be making some myself!
