1/2teaspoonFreshly ground black pepper, or to taste
24ouncesFresh baby spinach, cleaned and chopped

Heat the olive oil in a large metal skillet over medium heat. Add the shredded carrot, minced onion, minced garlic, seasoned salt, and ground black pepper and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally until all of the vegetables have softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl and set aside until needed.
Return the large metal pan to medium heat, add about half of the chopped spinach, season lightly with seasoned salt and black pepper. Cook, tossing the spinach occasionally until the spinach has wilted, about 3-4 minutes. Repeat this step with the remaining spinach.
In the large glass bowl that cooked veggies are in, add the minced scallions, drained pimentos, sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Cover tightly and refrigerate until the flavors meld and the dip is thoroughly chilled about 2 hours.
Season with more salt and pepper as needed, then transfer to a serving dish.
Serve with butter crackers, crusty bread, tortilla chips, or thick-cut potato chips.
