They’re fantastic sharing food and great for getting a party going, but there’s so much more to dips than just dipping. You can dollop sour cream and chive dip onto burgers, serve houmous on the side with lamb kebabs, make bruschetta with salsa and mozzarella, drizzle tzatziki over griddled salmon or mix it all up with salsa, sour cream and chive and guacamole with melted cheese and nachos.
Fresh dips can help you entertain or simply whip up a delicious and nutritious dinner with ease, and without breaking the bank either. They’re also a great way to watch calories and stay in shape. For instance swapping calorific mayonnaise for reduced-fat sour cream and chive saves 75kcal.
Make sure you keep some back in the fridge for the working week, as they’re dip-licious in sandwiches too.
