I put out a plate of veggies for my kids just about everyday. Because it’s standard practice, my kids love vegetables. Like most kids, they also love dip. I don’t always offer them dip but when I do I try to make sure it’s homemade.
Luckily there’s this recipe I have that kicks the butt of ranch dressing, in taste and ingredients. And if you don’t like the herbs and spices I use in mine, this recipe is very cool in the sense that it has a base that you can work with and put in anything that you like! If you are making this for a large group of people make sure you double it. But if it’s just for your family, this dip is best eaten within a couple days so I keep it on the small side.
This dip also makes a great, albeit thick, salad dressing and goes pretty well with chips too.
Easy Veggie Dip
1 cup plain yogurt, or ricotta cheese, or sour cream, or a combination
1/2 cup natural mayonnaise
2 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients. Serve chilled.
