Recipe: Savory Veggie Yogurt Dip

During our National Nutrition Month celebrations we are featuring a savory Veggie Yogurt Dip (recipe adapted from Shared Appetite). The dip itself contains carrots, spinach, kale and red pepper. Paired with red, green and yellow peppers it is definitely a "Go Snack"! Remember "Go Snacks and Salads" are snacks or salads that contain red, yellow and green (colors in a traffic light). When you see these three colors together on your plate, you know that you have created a healthy, nutrient packed meal.

We paired our dip with tri-colored peppers but you can use cucumbers, carrots, or celery. We hope you try this recipe with your family!
