Creamy dips are great to snack on, whether you’re visiting with friends or watching a big game. And if you’re keeping track of calories, this Creamy Salsa Yogurt Dip is a good one to try. This yummy dip is a little more on the healthy side compared to other dips. It’s made with yogurt, salsa, a little bit of light mayo, and some seasoning. Shredded cheese is optional, but I really like it with the cheese, even though it’s not quite as healthy that way! The dip shown here is made with Pepper Jack cheese, which gives it a little extra spice.
You can serve this dip with raw veggies or chips—it tastes great with both! If you need some ideas on what kind of raw veggies to use, here are a few: broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, slices of bell pepper, sugar snap peas, celery, cucumber slices…pretty much any of your favorite veggies!
