3 Easy GF Dip Recipes

**found in March 2012 Real Simple Magazine

Let's start with our favorite GF Greek Yogurt.  Mine is Fage 0 percent and add some pizazz to our usual snack and make dip for entertaining!  Or just a great healthy snack!! Yum, yum!

GF Lemon-Horseradish Dip
1 Cup (or individual Greek Yogurt container) with 2 tbsp. horseradish and 1 tsp. grated lemon zest.  In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, horseradish, lemon zest, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper.  Serve with beet chips or some other veggie chip.  Serves 6.
(smart-tip-Skip the packaged dips or powdered dips that you just add sour cream, because those are not gluten-free.  For sure those packets are not, as they use agents and thickeners that are never gluten-free, and the it's so hard to recognize the wording they use for gluten.  Make your own.)

Spinach-Pesto Dip
1 Cup (or individual Greek Yogurt container) with 1/2 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry and 1/4 cup gf pesto.  In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, spinach, pesto, and 1/4 tsp. each kosher salt and black pepper.  Sere with cut-up veggies.  Serves 6.  (Curious about fresh spinach?  If you want to use fresh spinach, know that you will need 10-12 cups of torn fresh leaves cooked down which will be the equivalent of 1 1/2 cups).

Sweet Raspberry Dip
1 Cup (or individual Greek Yogurt container) with 1/2 cup fresh or (thawed) frozen raspberries and 1 tbsp. sugar.  In a small bowl, mash the raspberries with the sugar; stir in the yogurt.  Serve with cut-up pears.  Serves 6.

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
