Add leaves to your lollipops and insert into ball for extra decoration.

Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip


Want to know what my family's latest craving is?  It's this Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip.  Yep, believe it or not, it isn't something sweet or bad for you.  It is a creamy yummy dip with cucumbers and carrots.  Of course you can serve it with any kind of veggie or potato chip.

I have to give credit to my hubby for this one.  He made this snack last week.  We all devoured it and begged for more.  It is now a staple in our fridge for last minute snacks, additions to lunches, or late night cravings. It would be perfect for your upcoming pinics and BBQs.

Ingredients:
1 pkg. (1oz.) dry ranch dip mix
16 oz. Greek yogurt, plain
4 green onions, chopped
veggies of your choice

Directions:
1.  Mix dip mix with yogurt.
2.  Add onions.
3.  Refrigerate until served.  Serve with your favorite veggies or chips.
