1 lean meat, 1/2 other carbohydrate, 2 vegetable
1/3 cup fat-free cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. mustard powder
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 pint grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
2 cups baby carrots
In a medium bowl, add softened cream cheese and sour cream.
Add honey, vinegar, mustard powder, and (optional) chile flakes. Stir until lumps are dissolved and mixture is combined, at least 1 minute. Taste, adding an additional teaspoon of mustard powder, depending on preference.
Serve immediately with cherry tomatoes and baby carrots; or let chill in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.
Cooking Tip: To quickly soften cream cheese, place in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds.
Keep it Healthy: Did you know you can make your own mustard? Simply combine ¼ cup mustard powder with ¼ cup cold water; stir together and let sit 10 minutes. Using mustard powder instead of store-bought mustard has much less sodium.
Tip: Serving size ¼ cup dip + 1 cup vegetables
Tip: While cherry tomatoes and baby carrots make great veggie dippers, you can also slice up cucumbers or cut broccoli or cauliflower florets for dipping too.
