Mediterranean Dip Recipe for Entertaining
Super Bowl Sunday is upon us, and that means cheesy dips, fried appetizers and a lot of cheering at the TV. I always rely on the simple practice of bringing a few healthy dishes to the party I know I can enjoy to after I indulge in a few bites the less nutritious options.
Easy Potluck Dip
There are a LOT of easy entertaining recipes floating around, but the elusive intersection between healthy, delicious and easy can be hard to track down. That’s why I’ve always enjoyed putting The Fresh 20 spin on my favorite dishes, with the goal of developing versions that hit those three targets on the head. This Mediterranean Layer Dip wins!
Healthy 7 Layer Dip Recipe
This fresh take on the traditional 7 layer dip is everything. Literally. Creamy, crunchy, tangy, sweet, refreshing and satisfying. It presents beautifully as a potluck dish and comes together in 5-1o minutes, with just 6 ingredients. It doesn’t get any easier. I’ll be serving this for the big Super Bowl game alongside my famous Super Bowl Sunday Nachos and InstantPot Buffalo Wings.
May the best team win!Print
