Egg Salad Dip

Egg Salad Dip

This fresh, herb-flavored egg dip is creamy enough to scoop up with your favorite veggie strips, but with just enough of a bite to keep it interesting. It’s great for an afternoon snack, with plenty of healthy fat and protein to help tide you over until dinnertime – so much better than a handful of crackers or popcorn that would just leave you hungry again in half an hour. It’s also perfect as an after-school snack for kids (not to mention a sneaky way to get them eating a few vegetables!).

You could always serve this dip with your favorite recipe for Paleo crackers, but an even simpler and easier alternative is to just use some dipping vegetables. A few ideas to get you started:

  • Pepper strips (any color)
  • Carrots (just chop up the big ones; it’s cheaper than buying baby carrots)
  • Broccoli or cauliflower
  • Celery sticks
  • Cherry tomatoes (with a fork or toothpicks)
  • Cucumber slices

…or anything else you can think of! It’s amazing how many dipping options people don’t consider until they’re forced to look beyond crackers. If you’re feeding a crowd, just set out an assortment of different vegetables and watch them (and the dip) disappear!
