I made some spinach dip a while ago (cream cheese, mozzarella, spinach, and spices) but then I was sick and didn't eat any.<br><br>
How long do you think it would stay good?

depends on the ingredients and storage. If the base was largely mayonnaise, it wil keep for up to about 10 days (vinegar). if it was a cream cheese/sour cream base, more like a week.

I never throw anything out unless it smells bad or is moldy... and I have honestly never had food poisoning.<br><br>
Well, one time when I was about 9 and decided it would be a good idea to taste raw hamburger. That was horrible.<br><br>
I would expect spinach dip to last a week or so, especially if it is in a sealed container.

I would say 3 or 4 days, but that's me.

Well, in my house, spinach dip only stays good for about 2 hours so I can't help you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

Me personally I wouldn't keep it past 3 days, but then I'm known to be extremely over-cautious when it comes to food and possible food poisoning.
