Diet Friendly Dill Dip, Spread, or Salad Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by KateL

I always offer this as a diet-friendly dip for raw vegetables at parties. It's one of my Tried & True favorites. It came from the 1975 edition of the American Heart Association Cookbook. It can also replace sour cream.

This works well with a number of potential substitutions, it is easy to customize based on taste or nutritional preferences; using just what I had in the fridge today. This time I used 1% cheese, original flavor cashew milk and a bit of diced Vidalia onion. I was chopping up a little bit of a few different vegetables and bread cubes for dipping. SO glad to have been able to make a delicious healthy treat without having to head to the store in cold weather!
