Would you believe me if I told you that veggies and dip was one of my favorite foods ever? Whenever I’m at a party, that’s the tray I check out first. I think it’s a good thing. I’d rather fill up on veggies than eat a cocktail wiener any day. I actually even prefer veggies over fruit. When I go to parties, I am often the one to volunteer to bring the veggie tray, to ensure there’s one on the food table!
Today I’m sharing a super easy veggie dip recipe that is FABULOUS. But, it’s not fabulous immediately out of the mixing bowl. You NEED to make this dip at least 8 hours ahead of when you’re planning to serve it. Even better, right?
You can make this dip the night before the party and only have your hair to worry about the day of the big event. Yeah, right. Those days are long gone. That was the “pre-children” era of my life. Now, I just call it a victory if I remember to put some lip gloss on before heading out the door. And even that doesn’t usually happen until I’m sitting in the car. But I’ll tell you what, not once when I’ve been asked to bring veggies and dip to a party, have I forgotten it. And after you make this recipe, you’ll know why!
As I stirred the ingredients together in the dish I started thinking about summer and all the fun our family will have up north at the lake this year. So many of our lazy afternoons at the cabin are filled with refreshing appetizers like veggies and dip and chips and fresh pico de gallo.
And just for fun, I decided to arrange the veggies in the shape of a carrot.
So, hey, next time you’re in need of a great veggie dip recipe, try this one. Don’t run to the store and buy the stuff in the container! For shame! Just kidding. I’ve been there, too!
