A healthy, tangy and refreshing dip for any occasion. This dip is so good, it works well with our pickled carrots or any combination of raw, seasonal vegetables.
When making dips or fruit smoothies, I always prefer substituting Greek yogurt for milk or sour cream .It’s extremely versatile and Its thick texture and rich taste is both high in protein and low in sodium.
