Creamy Garlic Herb Dip - Recipes

Tip 10. Dig the Dip

Do fresh fruits and veggies sound boring? Whip up a delicious dip and turn those healthy crudités into party food.

•   Go sweet. Dip apple wedges, pears, sliced bananas, mango, and pineapple spears in Caramel Sauce or our Creamy Pumpkin Dip for a satisfying dessert or snack.

•   Go savory. We get it. Not everyone gets excited when they look at a plate of raw vegetables. But pair them with a nutty hummus, zesty ranch, creamy avocado, and fiery salsa and now we’re talking. Crunchy crudités take on a whole new life with just a smidge of extra punch from a flavor-packed dip, like our creamy Garlic-Herb Dip (shown).
