Veggie Dips



Recommended Posts

This is probably one of the most important question I'll pose about WLS-can I get some good veggie-dip recommendations? Bottled, homemade, etc.

I honestly can't stand the taste of fat-free dressing (especially ranch) and would rather eat them plain.

There has to be some good choices out there for veggies.

Thanks all.

I just mix things into plain Greek yogurt - like a packet of ranch dressing mix, for example.

That's so simple, it's epic. I miss ranch.

So due to all of my web searches looking for food options and recipes, all of my Facebook ads have become low-carb food product recommendations. It's kind of ridiculous. A lot of them are very much marketed for Keto diets so the fat content is usually too high, but occasionally a gem will slip through.

One of the best surprises was Taste Flavor Company low calories sauces. They carry a kind of steep price tag, but I figured it was worth checking out. BOY WAS IT EVER! I sprung for the bundle that gave me all 4 flavors, even though I am not a fan of ranch and didn't expect to enjoy the Cilantro Lime Ranch sauce.

I was soooo wrong. So far the only one I haven't tried yet is the Cherrywood Chipotle BBQ Sauce because I haven't really made a meal that it would be a good fit for, but considering how in love I am with the other 3 flavors, I expect it will taste amazing. With the exception of the Spicy Garlic Parm, it's 10 calories in 2 tablespoons of sauce. Spicy Garlic Parm is 1 tablespoon for 10 calories. I highly recommend them!

Agree with @catwoman7. I use 2% plain Greek yogurt, specifically the brand Fage. A week or two ago mixed it with lime juice, salt, garlic powder, and some hot sauce (used sriracha), to make a creamy, chili, lime dressing/dip/sauce. It was amazing. I used it for Salad Dressing, fish taco sauce, and on a chicken burger patty. You can basically use plain Greek yogurt to replace mayo or sour cream in most dip/dressing recipes. I have been meaning to try to use it as a base to create a Cesar salad dressing, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you like hummus, that is always a good dip too, and it’s easy to make if you are feeling like doing so. Good luck!
