Simple Vegetable Dips

Simple Homemade Vegetable Dips recipes by SeasonWithSpice.com
“In 2012, I want to eat healthier foods.  I want to prepare more meals at home.  I want to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.”

Just a few of your answers to the question we posed last week regarding food-related resolutions for 2012.  Easier said than done, right?  But more than reasonable with a little planning each week, and a little fun.

Spicy honey mustard dips and Dill dip by SeasonWithSpice.com

The best way to enjoy your daily dose of fresh vegetables with no fuss?  Dip them!

I love serving up a good mix of raw vegetables with simple, homemade dips that are absolutely delicious.  Just start with the wonderfully sweet flavor of honey and go from there.  Honey is a healthy and dynamic ingredient that complements and enhances a variety of dips.  Helping all of us keep to our resolution long past January.

I’m sharing three easy recipes here – a honey mustard in its simplest form (my favorite), a spicy honey whole grain Dijon mustard blend, and a quick dill dip to balance out the sweetness.  Try them all, have fun, and I wish every one of you success with your journey to a more healthy eating lifestyle in the New Year!

Thanks for the dip recipes!! I'll be trying those with my kids and bonus it's all gluten free so my oldest can eat it too. :-)
