Buttermilk Vegetable Dip


There is no better snack than a plateful of fresh vegetables and a tasty dip.  Whether it’s for game day, for your kids when they come home from school, or something you pack and take with you to work – you really can’t go wrong.  It’s not just perfect in the middle of the day.  It’s also a great appetizer or accompaniment  to a meal.  It’s such a healthful thing to put on your table, and it’s an incredibly easy to prepare.  Since my days have been especially hectic lately, and I haven’t had a lot of time to cook, this has been a great solution.  The other night my husband picked up some sliced ham on the way back from work and I took out all of the leftover fresh vegetables from the week.  I had buttermilk in the house, which makes a great base for dip.  The flavor in this dip is great, but if you like a dip that’s thick you should add a little sour cream.  And go easy on the garlic.  A little went a very long way.
