This Green Goddess dip is fresh, light and filled with herby goodness. It’s the perfect remedy once you’re sick of heavy holiday food! Dip veggies in it for an easy, healthy snack!
Raise your hand if you’re starting to feel weighed down by all the heavy (delicious) food the holidays bring. I know I am! I have a special place in my heart for all things rich and indulgent and I’ve really been enjoying them. At this point, though, I’m ready for something light and bright. A little post-holiday pick-me-up.
This Green Goddess Dip (or dressing) is both fresh and refreshing. Filled with herbs and lemon juice, it’s the perfect counterpoint to a cold winter’s day, but made mainly with pantry and fridge staples. Make it for a party, make it for your lunch, make it as a salad dressing or even as a spread for sandwiches and wraps. Enjoy this little taste to spring all winter long. 🙂
