With two little ones to run after all day I don't get much time to sit down to a formal meal. That said, my snacking game is very important and I don't always choose the best options. While experimenting in the kitchen one afternoon I created a VERY simple vegetable dip that has since elevated my snacking game. Creating this veggie dip has now become part of my Sunday night routine as I chop my vegetables and fruits for the week.
For this simple recipe, you will need:
- Juice of 2 small limes, or 1 large lime
- 1 large Hass avocado. Save the pit to help extend the life of the avocado.
- 1/3 cup of greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
Place all ingredients in your favorite food processor or blender.
Blend all ingredients until they are incorporated together. And that is it! Didn't I say it was easy?
Depending on the ripeness of the avocado you may need to add more lime, olive oil, or greek yogurt. Your preference, but I like to finish with a pinch of pink salt and cracked pepper.
I store the dip in an air-tight container in my refrigerator for up to 3 days with the avocado pit. I love this recipe, because it adds variety to my vegetables and the protein helps keep me full longer.
I enjoy pairing this dip with red bell peppers (the sweetness and crispness are a nice contrast), and cucumbers. As you can see from my instagram feed, thecountrypeony, my one-year-old daughter also loves this dip. Now if only I could get my three-year-old son on board.
I hope you find that this dip helps to elevate your snacking game.
