HOT! HOT! HOT! If the summer heat is “getting” you, like us, its time for light dinners without turning on the oven or stove. Add some Pita Chips and a big platter of chopped raw veggies to this yummy and easy dip, and dinner is done!
Dill adds a lemony fresh zip to this easy, cool and creamy dip. Dill also has a significant amount of vitamin A and vitamin C, as well as trace amounts of folate, iron, and manganese.
