Since its the holiday season and everyone wants to celebrate without gaining weight, this is the perfect dip for both veggies and chips. Definitely make ahead and refrigerate for a few hours so the flavors blend. I served it at a small party and it was a huge hit. Everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe! I will definitely make this again!
