Labneh Dip with Caramelized Onions and Fennel
Onion dip is always a crowd-pleaser and even more delectable when lightened up with labneh, a Middle Eastern yogurt cheese. Caramelizing the onions and fennel is a slow process, but it's time well spent: They add intense flavor.
Whipped Hearts of Palm and Feta Dip
Naturally low-fat hearts of palm become creamy when pureed and are the perfect partner for salty sheep's-milk feta and fresh dill. Finish with a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little kick.
Avocado Ranch Dip
Avocado anchors our healthy riff on the traditional ranch dip. It also calls for garlic, white-wine vinegar, low-fat buttermilk, Dijon, olive oil, and a whopping cup of mixed fresh herbs. Feel free to use anything growing in your garden, such as chives, tarragon, basil, cilantro, and parsley. Let your imagination run wild!
