Whether you have party at your place or its all chaos of a game day; dip recipes are must for a day. Whether you choose hummus, guacamole, yogurt or creamy vegetable dip. Dips are must for all finger foods. If you are a health conscious and always worried about your waist line then healthy spinach yogurt dip, hummus or guacamole are always good. They are healthy and contains richness of yogurt, legumes and vegetables.

Ideally one should remember dip recipes are just a sauce or dipper and not a main course.

  • Similarly you can make a vegetable dip recipe using fresh vegetables and herbs too. Use thinly diced cucumbers or grated cucumber, chopped fresh herbs like the combination of parsley, chives, tarragon, mint, or dill etc. Salt and pepper to taste. You can also add coarsely ground mustard for that extra zingy taste and flavors. However, remember to strain and squeeze out excess liquid from the grated cucumbers.
