Is it hummus? Nope – there’s no Tahini! Is it loaded with stuff I can’t eat if I’m eating clean? Absolutely not! Will my friends that don’t eat clean like it? We certainly hope so! Is it a great appetizer to bring over to a Labor Day BBQ? Absolutely!!
What are you waiting for? This simple dip takes all of about 5 minutes to make and paired with baked Ezekiel tortilla chips (simply use a pizza slicer to cut into wedges and then place on a baking sheet and bake to a golden crisp), it’s the perfect compliment to your holiday weekend festivities.
