OMG… don’t they look amazing??  My new friends at Snikiddy sent me their whole line of Eat Your Vegetable Chips.  These tasty chips are not only loaded with vegetables, but they also come in the most amazing flavors!  You can eat them without feeling guilty for having chips!!

My friends at Snikiddy are also giving you a chance to win some of your very own to try!  But before we give them away, let’s talk about how I served them.

With the 4th of July holiday upon us and having just got home from a trip, I was determined to incorporate the chips into my menu for the week.  First, I made my favorite taco salad, subbing the tortilla chips for Jalapeño Ranch flavored Eat Your Vegetables chips – – So good!!

And, on 4th of July, I decided to try a new dip, combining two of my favorites:  Avocado and Cucumber.  This was a HUGE hit with my friends Tiffany and Alex!

We loved this dip!  It was cool, fresh, and just perfect for a hot day.  I’ll definitely be making it again!

2.  Add cucumber and scallions.  Note:  Rather than dice my cucumbers, I just put them in the food processor.  Chopped in seconds!

4.  Refrigerate before serving.  Note:  Storing the avocado dip with the nut in it also helps to keep the avocado from turning brown!
