The lead up to Christmas is a busy and social time of the year for most people. Food plays a pivotl role in this increased connection between people, and often we are requested to bring a plate of food to share. I try my best to take real & nourishing food to share with others, while also keeping it simple to keep my stress levels down. Real food doesn't have to be time consuming, as I hope this recipe illustrates!
I took this dip to my children's daycare Christmas party yesterday and thought I would share it in case you are looking for something quick to take to a gathering. I served this dip with lamb & vegetable meatballs, but it would be equally good with vegetable sticks, brown rice crackers or good qaulity corn chips. The flavour of real food will always outshine those provided by processed ingredients, and the freshness of the lime and herbs in this dip will be a welcome addition to any celebration.
