My Favorite Vegetable Dip

DSC_0219

It is that time of year where we are all probably trying to get our eating back on track after the holiday season! I thought I would share my favorite veggie dip today. I love it because not only is it delicious but it is so packed with flavor I hardly use any at all to dip in. I actually look forward to eating my veggies. For me a cup of carrots and celery with a tsp. of this dip fills that crunchy/salty craving that usually has me reaching for a bag of chips.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayo

2 tsp. seasoning  salt

2 tsp. dill weed

2 tsp. parsley

3 Tbsp. onion flakes

dash of pepper

You can make a batch and keep it in the fridge for several weeks. I love to cut some veggies up and put some of this out on the table before my kids get home from school and they willingly devour their vegetables!

Have a great weekend!

      Many years ago I was introduced at a church function to a really great dip. One from which I went from “omg to no Way.” From What I found out was the main ingredient, per say, in this dip.
      Since I wasn’t fond of this ingredient, this turned out to be something I eat now, regularly and LOVE it!
      The dip was made from “plain yogurt” these ladies knew I didn’t eat yogurt, and made faces, (you know the kind, when you Just won’t touch or eat that “certain” food!)
      I was Tricked into trying it and my first reaction was, “Ummmm I LOVE this, its good, yet it had a distinct taste, not like other dips I have tried.” So I asked them. What’s in it? To my surmise, I was duped! So yes, you can imagine my expression, when I ate it!
      Its the same dip above with only the plain yogurt in it. Replaced by the mayo and sour cream. That dip us my favorite, to this day. Yogurt can be replaced with any milk product. Even in mashed potatoes. The potatoes are so creamy and Yum!
      And for those that are lactose intolerant. And your Figure,, will especially show the signs of no real added “fat”. And, along with some weight loss in the mean time. Still trying to trick my husband into trying that dip, he hates yogurt, no matter what I’ve tried. Lol 😀
      But, the mashed potatoes, he does enjoy!
      Its a start!
      Enjoy!

    I love dips that have dill! In fact, I heard there was a limited edition dill essential oil and it was amazing in a dip I tried. I’m guessing you could go lowfat on the sour cream and mayo, right? And I don’t have onion flakes, so maybe onion salt would work instead?
    Thanks for sharing!
