Common Questions

How long can spinach dip sit out at room temperature?

When serving spinach dip, it should sit out at room temperature for no more than two hours. You can extend the serving time by placing the serving platter/plate on a tray of ice. 

Can you make spinach dip ahead of time?

Yes, spinach dip can be made 1 to 3 days ahead of time. Make the dip but do not place it in the bread bowl until you are ready to serve.

Can you freeze spinach dip?

No, you should not freeze spinach dip. Both mayonnaise, sour cream and Greek yogurt (if you use it in place of sour cream) will all separate when thawing. This will make the dip watery.

Can you use fresh spinach in place of frozen in the dip?

You can use fresh spinach, but it will need to be prepped before adding to the dip. You will need to use a larger amount of fresh spinach to replace the frozen spinach. Place 1-2 teaspoons of oil in a skillet and add 16 ounces of fresh spinach. Cook the spinach for 3 to 5 minutes over a medium heat until it is cooked down. Allow the spinach to cool and then squeeze out the remaining water. Add the cooled spinach to the dip.
