Crudités with Creamy Herb Dip

Party time? Setting out veggies with a savory dip is a great substitution for the standard chips and party mix.

A low-fat version of the standby appetizer is great for any time of the year, whether you are entertaining or just want a fun snack on hand. Fresh herbs make all the difference in this dip.


  • 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup low-fat or nonfat mayonnaise
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoons chopped fresh marjoram
  • 1 Tablespoon thinly sliced fresh chives
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Select from the following, for a total of about 6 cups of vegetables:
  • Cucumber, cut into thin sticks
  • Cauliflower florets
  • Broccoli florets
  • Carrot sticks or baby carrots
  • Yellow squash, cut into thin sticks
  • Radishes
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Red, yellow or green peppers, cut into strips


  1. Combine sour cream and mayonnaise in a bowl and fold together, mixing until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, marjoram, chives and tarragon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Spoon mixture into a small serving bowl; cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. Arrange the vegetables on a platter around the bowl of dip. Alternate with fat-free crackers or matzo, if you like.
