Creamy Veggie Dip

I was looking for a dip recipe to take to a friend's for watching Miss America. She was making soup and little sandwiches and fruit so I searched for a vegetable dip on pinterest. I wanted something different than the typical sour cream or yogurt mixed with a packet and this fit the bill!

Creamy Vegetable Dip
From Life's Ambrosia, Serves 6
8 oz cream cheese, softened - I used reduced fat
2 Tbsp mayonnaise - I used light
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried dill
1 red bell pepper, diced small
1 carrot, diced small
2 green onions, diced
salt and pepper to taste

Use a hand mixer to whip together cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and allow to refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve with crackers and vegetables.

It is really more of a spread that a dip but is very flavorful! The Olive Oil Cracked Pepper Triscuits paired fabulously with it. Definitely will be making again and using the healthier ingredients did not sacrifice taste. Hope you try it!

Linking up at these fun parties:


  1. Love a cream cheese based dip / spread! And seeing those nice cucumber slices I bet this would make a refreshing sandwich (cukes + spread) in the summer.

    Love that you tried something you found on Pinterest ... that's what I'm sharing too on Frugalicious Friday. I feel better about all the time I spend pinning when I actually use the info, you too?


  2. This looks yum, thanks for sharing the recipe! =) New follower!

  3. Yummy! Those flavored Triscuits are amazing! I think I might have to try this dip!

  4. Emily,
