Courtney's 30th Birthday Bash Veggie Cracker Dip

This was a great party food.  Tasty and filling.  Enjoy!

2 bunches of fresh parsley or 2 Tbsp dry

6 baby carrots

2 broccoli stems tips only

Rosemary, marjoram, garlic salt to taste (generally I pinch some dried rosemary and dried margarine and a sprinkle of garlic salt)

1/2 cup spinach

1/4 cup green olives

2 Tbsp chopped purple onion

3 slices of red pepper chopped

1 cup of dripped Greek or homemade yogurt, or use my latest addiction... sunflower cream cheese in the Herb flavour from Spero brand

I served this dip with my almond flour crackers. You can also chill and ball up rolling in crushed pecans. This makes me think of my parents' popular cheeseball parties in the seventies. :)

Can be frozen to make ahead of time.

What does it mean to use dripped yogurt?  I simply drape cheesecloth over a bowl securing it with a rubber band. Scoop the yogurt on top of the cheese cloth and overnight let the liquid drain from it. What you'll wake to find is a thick yogurt very similar to cream cheese in flavor and consistency and appearance. 

Tip: make this recipe and then thin with coconut milk...voila! You have clean eating ranch dressing!

Tip#2: this dip is great as the cream cheese layer in veggie pizza!

Enjoy! Let me know if you try this recipe!
