Spinachy Green Goddess Dip

As part of the healthy eating cleanse, I bring you, Spinachy Green Goddess Dip, in all its green, earthy goodness. It’s an herby ranch-like dressing that you don’t have to feel guilty about (just keep your portions in control). It’s high in calcium, low in fat and calories, and spinach is high in good-for-you vitamins and minerals.

Spinachy Green Goddess Dressing or Dip for all your veggie needs

Serve it with veggies, like red pepper and cauliflower. Or, go for a monochromatic presentation of zucchini, broccoli, and celery. Dress a salad with this green goodness. Serve it with crackers or as a sandwich spread.

Switch the herbs up in different seasons. Basil and tarragon in the summer months. Chives, thyme, and rosemary in the winter. Whatever suits your fancy.
