Kale Tzatziki Dip

17 Jun

Do you love that tzatziki dip that is always served at any Greek restaurant and on those delicious gyros you can order? Well I decided to take that typical dip, and add a little crunch and greens to it! A mix between your typical veggie dip and tzatziki sauce :)

What better way to add some greens, than incorporate some detoxifying kale, and adding that delicious crunchy texture that everyone loves in a dip by adding some refreshing jicama?

Everything in this dip has so many benefits, it should be called a dip of champions! Only kidding. But really, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. And when you can have a whole cup without feeling guilty like most veggie dips, I think you’ll be quite happy!
