Very, very good. I also used the whole box of spinach. For those of you who tried onion soup & didn't like it, try leek. It's milder. Knorr's makes it, and it's usually in the same place where y...

This was a very good spinach dip but you really need the whole box of spinach. I have always made the spinach dip on the back of the Knorr Vegatable soup mix box and it is very good also. I re...

Absolutely wonderful! And I'm not a big fan of sour cream or mayonnaise, but this is great! I just couldn't find leek soup mix, so I used a packet of Knorr's veg. mix & added about 1/3 of an oni...
