Crunchy Lemon Dill Vegetable Dip


Super Bowl Recipe #5:  Vegetable dip may not be the sexiest of options on the table.  But it is the workhorse, a necessary counterpoint to the fun, heavy appetizers.  This dip is full of clean vegetal crunch with accents of dill and citrus.  

Ingredients 
1 ½ cups sour cream
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons chopped dill
2 scallions, minced
1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 carrots, minced
½ teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions
After the ingredients are prepared, just mix everything together in a bowl.  Refrigerate.  Serve with vegetables, crackers, or whatever else you want.

  1. Great recipe! I love the "crunch" in this dip. I am always looking for recipes to satisfy my "salt tooth" that are fairly healthy. I think this would do it!
