Deceptively Delicious Veggie Dip — Just in time for the Super Bowl

Don’t want to sit the bench at this weekend’s Super Bowl party?  With this delicious (and easy!) Ranch veggie dip, you won’t need to.

Deceptively Delicious Veggie Dip

Ingredients

16 ounce tub of light sour cream
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dips mix (Note: must be the Dips packet, see picture)

Mix the two together and VOILA!… amazingly delicious veggie dip.

Pair the dip with a heaping plate of your favorite veggies.  My favorites are:

  • Mini-sweet peppers
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh french green beans
  • Baby carrots
  • Salted cucumber slices
  • Radishes
  • Sliced mini-portabella mushrooms
  • Celery sticks

Two tablespoons (30g) of Deceptively Delicious Veggie Dip is only 1 PointPlus for Weight Watchers followers.  A whole 1/4 cup (4 TBS or 60g) is only 2P+!  Along with a plate of fresh veggies, that’s a Super Bowl bargain, as far as I’m concerned!

Two quick tidbits – First, I tried substituting Greek yogurt for light sour cream and I didn’t care for the resulting texture, despite usually loving Greek yogurt.   Secondly, in a pinch, I once bought a store brand light sour cream.  Though store brands are often good quality, I could taste the difference.  It would be my recommendation to purchase a name brand light sour cream.  Personally, my favorite is Daisy Light Sour Cream.
