Green Goddess Dip

I have a confession.  I am an evening snacker.  When the kids are finally in bed and I get to sit and relax I love having something to snack on.  When I am watching TV or reading through my Google Reader I just want some kind of snack.  Come on, don’t judge me.  There are worse vices to have.

Since I like to snack I thought I would at least find some healthy snack options.  Enter this dip.  Delicious!!!  I cut up some veggies to eat with it so double healthiness!  If you eat the whole dish yourself does that subtract healthy points?  You would be eating more veggies with the dip.  Not that I would eat the whole thing anyway…

Make a batch of this dip up tonight for healthy snacking while watching Top Chef.  Or the Country Music Awards.  Or whatever you will be watching.  But you really should watch Top Chef!

  2. The only time I’ve ever had this is at The Melting Pot (where we usually go for our anniversary because they always send us a coupon–we’re super romantic like that). I think it would be really good as a baked potato topper too!

    • Yummy! As a baked potato topping sounds delicious!
