Spruce up any salad with this creamy dressing! It's spicy but not at all hot! Drizzle over salads, grilled chicken or fish. Use in place of sour cream on tacos or use as base for a pasta salad.

Skinny Cheese Fondue
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture!

Once I started making my own hummus I wondered why I ever used to spend so much money on the stuff at the store! This is easy, tasty, and lower in fat than what you buy prepared

Olive Tapenade
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Tapenade is a traditional sauce or condiment from Provence, in the south of France. It adds a punch of flavor for very few calories. You can buy premade tapenade, but you'll spend more money and be consuming more sodium than if you made it at home.

Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5
(325 ratings)

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Easy Eggplant Bruschetta
Good 3.8/5
(78 ratings)

Simply seasoned eggplant is great as a dip, a spread for crackers or crusty bread, or a flavor-booster for chicken.

This is wonderful on crackers of your choice.
