Lately I have been eating hummus like a mad women. Everyday when I get home from school I eat what seems like an endless amount of carrots and cauliflower with my spicy chipotle hummus. I swear, you’d better not come near me when I am eating my hummus because I WON’T share. I love that stuff. But..what happens when I run out of hummus half-way through the week and am frantically searching for a substitute?! Yup, I had to make this dill dip. Did I mention dill is one of my favourite seasonings? I love love dill pickle popcorn and dill pickle egg whites (yes I love dill pickle egg whites, call me weird). So what better way to have dill then in a delicious veggie dip. It tastes almost like sour-cream and onion dip! It is very low-fat and takes only seconds and a few simple ingredients to make. Take me to the recipe!
This is a great way to use up a leftover half of Avocado. Just mix up this simple tuna salad recipe, scoop out the pit of the avocado, stuff and your good to go! Plus it’s very filling 🙂
