I am so excited to share this raw spinach dip with you and I know that you are going to love it too! I have got this dip down. This is very close to that spinach dip that get’s served with pumpernickel bread. That was my inspiration, although it feels like a lifetime ago since I have tasted it. But regardless, this raw spinach dip was so delicious that it just disappeared. It was a hit around here and I hope you love it as much too!

This dip recipe has dehydrated onion and garlic, along with a can of water chestnuts – questionably raw, but they give a fantastic crunch and so integral to this dip. These along with lots of spinach are added to my hemp oil mayo, which makes a fantastic base. ..and voila, abundantly nutritious raw spinach dip that you can feel good about eating!!

We ate most of it straight up on crackers, but then I mixed some with more grated vegetables, and some chopped nori! Then we ate this filling spooned on lettuce leaves. Delicious. It’s great on it’s own and makes everything it’s mixed with taste amazing too!  How will you eat your ultimate raw spinach dip?

Come with me to the kitchen. This is how it is made!
