We all know for our general health and well-being we are advised to eat our ‘5 a day’ – that is at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
If your kids are anything like mine, the fruits are easy enough to eat, they struggle more with getting the veggies in daily.
Did you know that eating your vegetables fresh and RAW is actually better for you than cooking them?
That’s because when you cook the produce, you destroy some of the valuable nutrients and photochemicals, and some are flushed away with the water if you’ve boiled your veg.
We like to use carrot and celery sticks, broccoli in small florets, slivers of bell or sweet pepper and sweet cherry tomatoes.
Usually we don’t do all of these at once, choose a couple!
The dip also pairs well with plain/lightly salted tortilla chips.
For the Dill Dip- you will need:
1 300ml tub crème fresh or sour cream (about 1 US cup)
300ml mayonnaise (about 1 US cup)
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP garlic powder (NOT garlic salt!)
2 tsp dill weed (dried herb)
Pour all your ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl.
You can easily adjust the seasoning to your own personal taste and preference.
That’s it folks!
The 5 ingredient wonder dip shared by my best friend’s mother many years ago.
I don’t even measure the ingredients anymore, I can make this in a hurry, by just throwing it all into a bowl, giving it a good stir, and adding more of this or that as I mix and taste test!
