Once you started making your own homemade dips you do not like the store bought anymore.Make your own fresh dips with low effort fast and easy. Make them ahead in time for BBQs, parties, or buffets and keep them covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If you prefer to eat raw vegetables with light dips (e.g. if you are on a diet) be sure to check the calorie content.Dips are not only good to eat with vegetables or crackers, but also with meat or freshly baked bread. There is an own category for special spreads and pate as well as BBQ sauces and fondue dips. Salad dressings are not a good dip because of their liquid consistency they are more appropriate for salads. If you are watching a balanced diet you should eat a salad or raw vegetables with a dip once a day. For a decorative look serve the dips in halved bell peppers or in holed tomatoes. Raw vegetables as a healthy snack in the office keep you in shape. Fill the dip in a jar with a screw cap.
