Get Your Kids to Eat More Vegetables: Green Goddess Dip

I had way too many green beans in my refrigerator and wasn't motivated to cook them. Then someone on twitter suggested I simply blanch them and eat them with a dip: brilliant! What kind of a dip should I make? And that's when I remembered I had a container of Greek yogurt and a bunch of cilantro that I needed to use up. That's how I ended up making my version of Green Goddess Dip.

Green Goddess Dip
7 ounces Greek yogurt
1 garlic clove, smashed
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup cilantro leaves
salt & pepper to taste

1. Add everything to a food processor and puree.

I served this dip with green beans and red peppers, but it'll be equally as good mixed into a potato or pasta salad or served on top of salmon or chicken.

I bet your kids would love it too!

I always thought Goddess dip meant there was avocado in it - have I been living a lie?

This looks amazing. I love cilantro in everything.
