As summer starts winding down – I know I know, let’s just not talk about it – it’s time to start penciling in the last few BBQs and get-togethers before the first cool fall wind. This healthy summer dip recipe has been my personal favorite this summer and I’ve borrowed it from my mom to share with you guys! It is a delicious combination of fresh veggies garnished to taste with EVOO, salt, pepper and cilantro. It’s a great source of protein and makes for a pretty appetizer that looks as good as it’ll make you feel 🙂
