You can count on this combination of bright, Greek creamy yogurt dip and crisp veggies as your beacon of freshness amidst the sea of hearty winter comfort foods. This minimalist yogurt dip draws flavor and warmth from the spice cabinet and relies on the season’s bounty of fresh limes for a tangy twist (plus a little trick to make the veggies pop!).

Stir it together in the morning, then serve it with a tray of radishes, cucumbers, and carrots for a snack you can munch on all day long. It’s the easiest way to make sure you’re getting some veggies in between those bowls of mac and cheese and mugs of hot chocolate.

Make Veggies Pop with a Squeeze of Lime Juice

Winter is the season of citrus, and this wholesome snack leans hard on lime juice to make it more exciting. It’s the key to making a creamy yogurt dip pop, but it also goes further. Just before serving, treat your veggies to a squeeze of fresh lime juice. This simple trick instantly livens up a plate of plain crudité with an unexpected zing.
