Vegetable Dip and Guilt Free Chips

Having a holiday party this year? Maybe you're going to one and you'd like to bring something that everyone will love and you'll be able to nibble on guilt free and feel good about it? Well then, this vegetable dip is just what you're looking for. Pair it with my chips recipe, or rather technique, and you'll be happily munching the night away. Both are easy to prepare and the dip makes an ample amount for a party. I hope you enjoy.
Vegetable Dip

1 1/2 cups low fat sour cream
1 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. fresh dill, chives, parsley or tarragon (or any combination to equal 2 Tbsp.), chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped fine
1/4 cup celery, chopped fine
1/4 cup radish, chopped fine
1/2 cup scallion, chopped fine
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts, chopped fine
1 - 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
2 Tbsp. white horse radish, drained
salt and pepper

Chop the vegetables as fine as possible. Blend all ingredients in a large bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Chill for about 1 hour to marry flavors. Makes 4 1/2 cups.

Note ~ If you prefer to use whole fat sour cream and mayonnaise that's fine. It will just increase your total fat but it will decrease the carbohydrate even more.
