Crudités with Creamy Herb Dip


Party time? Setting out veggies with a savory dip is a great substitution for the standard chips and party mix.

A low-fat version of the standby appetizer is great for any time of the year, whether you are entertaining or just want a fun snack on hand. Fresh herbs make all the difference in this dip.


Dip 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
1/2 cup low-fat or nonfat mayonnaise
1 1/2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T chopped fresh marjoram
1 T thinly sliced fresh chives
1/2 T chopped fresh tarragon
Salt and black pepper to taste


Select from the following, for a total of about 6 cups of vegetables:
Cucumber, cut into thin sticks
Cauliflower florets
Broccoli florets
Carrot sticks or baby carrots
Yellow squash, cut into thin sticks
Radishes Cherry tomatoes
Red, yellow or green peppers, cut into strips


Combine sour cream and mayonnaise in a bowl and fold together, mixing until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, marjoram, chives and tarragon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Spoon mixture into a small serving bowl; cover and chill until ready to serve.

Arrange the vegetables on a platter around the bowl of dip. Alternate with fat-free crackers or matzo, if you like.
