4th of July is traditionally all about the barbecue, but every good meal starts with snacks, especially when entertaining. I always like to have something out for people to nibble on right away, and honestly snacks are kind of a favorite food group of mine— salty, crunchy, cheesy. These are all of the good things! Unfortunately they are usually all of the "bad" things too, and sometimes result in next-day regret and a puffy face.
Chips & Dip is in that category for me. A good potato chip is just so satisfying and sour cream is happiness and rainbows and before I know it, I've eaten the whole bowl and have to fend off the impending guilt with more wine. Enter Skinny Onion Dip. Caramelized onions bring rich, full flavor, while nonfat Greek yogurt, my favorite guilt-free "sour cream," takes the place of the usual dairy products. The result is a light and tangy dip that you can feel good about. Serve it with veggies or pita crisps if you're really on good behavior, but personally I'm still going for potato chips. #balance.
