Greek Sour Cream Dip with Crudites – Holiday Appetizer

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On November 1, 2011 @ 11:00 am In Healthy Holiday | No Comments

I have partnered again with Breakstone’s Sour Cream…this time for the “Taste Test, Breakstone’s Battle of the Kitchen Bloggers [3]”. This challenge is lots of fun with lots of great prizes. For this “battle”, I’m up against 2 other amazing bloggers…so I’m gonna need your help!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some of our favorite holiday recipes (this being the first)…then you’ll have the chance to watch a super cool video about my recipe and the other bloggers’ recipes, featuring Sandra Lee.

(Yes, that Sandra Lee.)

In the video, she and her team share an awesome idea for another way to enjoy this dip [3]…perhaps with your holiday leftovers!?!

After watching the video, you can vote for your favorite recipe [4].  By voting, you’ll be entered to win weekly prizes of $50, and a grand prize of $2,500!!! You can vote once per day and can receive one additional entry for viewing the video (1 additional entry per video, not per video view).

So know that we’ve got the nitty gritty details all figured out, let’s get on to the yummy part. Around our house we don’t eat appetizers often. Until the holidays rolling around. And the official “holiday grazing season” begins.

Bring on the appetizers!

Of all the many varieties of appetizers that exist in the food world, sour cream dips are definitely my favorite. I like that they can be made low in fat. I like how the Breakstone’s sour cream takes on the flavors of what is mixed with it in the dip. And I like that you can pair it with healthy vegetable and whole wheat crudités for dipping.

This Greek Sour Cream Dip combines several of the powerful flavors from traditional Greek food…and will not disappoint!
