1
can (8 ounces) water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
1
cup finely chopped green onion (9 medium)
Rye crackers, rice crackers or raw vegetables for dipping, if desired

Expert Tips

A hollowed-out bread loaf makes the perfect “bowl” for your dip. Cube the bread removed from the loaf, and use for dipping.

Make this lighter dip a nice alternative to your standard holiday appetizers. Stir about 1 cup of dried cranberries into the spinach dip; it’s fun, festive and adds a touch of sweetness and color.
