Healthy Loaded Veggie Dip

One of my all time favorite foods is DIP. Any kind of dip. Hot or cold. I consider dip its own food group. Hummus, tzatziki, salsa, baba ganoush, even pesto. If I can scoop it with veggies, chips, or even just a spoon, I’ll eat it. I first made this Loaded Veggie Dip for a holiday family gathering…and have made it several times since. For lunch.

This loaded veggie dip is creamy and rich without the guilt. The first layer is garlic hummus, followed by a layer of fat-free Greek yogurt with fresh chives. The top layer is a massive mound of colorful, diced veggies – radishes, tomatoes, bell peppers, scallions, black olives, and cucumbers piled high.

A dip like this calls for a sturdy dipper, a scooper that can stand up to the weight of all those veggies. My favorite is Trader Joe’s Quinoa & Black Bean Infused Tortilla Chips. Thick strips of bell pepper, hearty snap peas, and baby carrots pair well with this dip, too. When I first served this Loaded Veggie Dip, non-gluten-free party guests ate it with slices of warm pita. With its hearty, veggie packed texture, others cast the dippers aside altogether, choosing to eat it with a fork.

The best part of all? You can scoop a pile on your plate – and have seconds – without feeling heavy or over served. Grab your dipper, and dig in!

      Thanks, Marty! And definitely. It’s so light and refreshing. It pairs well with chips and veggies, but also would be delicious dolloped on top of a burger! Since it contains Greek yogurt, I would keep it chilled if the picnic is outdoors. Hope you enjoy!

      I’ve had leftovers a day later, and it was still tasty. The leftover Greek Yogurt made it just a tad liquidy, though. Once prepared, I kept it chilled for about 2-3 hours before serving, and it tasted great.

    Oh my gosh, this dip is so great! I will never serve another veggie platter again! Give yourself plenty of time to dice , only Edward Scissorhands could small dice all of this veg in ten minutes!!! But it is SO worth it!!!

      So glad you like it!! Ha Edward Scissorhands – good point. I’m pretty fast with a knife but I’ll modify the time since we don’t all dice at the same speed. Thanks for pointing this out!
