I prepared for our last camping trip the way I prepare for everything in life – with food. My job is to get all the food ready and I make my husband do everything else. My favorite things to do when we go camping is to sit by the campfire and read while the kids play… and EAT. But the one thing I don’t like to do when we go camping is dishes. That’s why I always spend a good half a day prepping everything so that camping life can be filled with only the things I enjoy.

I knew our menu would be filled with favorites like hot dogs and s’mores, so I wanted to balance it out with some healthy snacks. I’ve been wanting to make a green goddess dip for quite some time, and now I can finally cross it off my list. Much like other dips that are full of sour cream and mayo, this dip has just enough of the naughty stuff to make it creamy with the added bonus of protein packed greek yogurt, but the main ingredients are fresh raw vegetables.

As with most recipes like this, you can alter the ingredients however you wish. I basically threw in a few things I knew I wanted as well as some other stuff from the frig that had to be used up.

The end result was a tasty dip that I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating with the added bonus of extra veggies I used for dipping. You could totally use this dip on top of grilled fish or chicken as well. You’ve seen me post a lot of naughty desserts and cheesy treats. Now you know I like to balance those out with healthy snacks every so often.
