Honey Lime Dipping Sauce Recipe

Honey Lime Dip

“Mommy, tomorrow is hog day!” Will told me excitedly last night.

Now, Will is a smart boy who tends to remember everything (no, really, everything … he brought up a great time he had with our cousins in the summer two years ago this past week. The boy is four and a half – how did he even remember that?). So, it was safe to assume that he heard about this hog day somewhere … the question was where and what exactly was it.

It took me a good minute or two before I put one and one together …. Groundhog Day.

Right. So, today is Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. Great! Thanks, Phil! That means, according to the lore, that there will be six more weeks of winter. Oh yay. Just what I wanted to hear on this dark, dreary day. Aren’t you excited?

Eh, the weather might be a bummer, but this dip is bright and sunny and so, so tasty. Will said that it tasted like frosting and was yummy. I’m not sure about the frosting part (maybe a cream cheese frosting? Sort of?). Meanwhile, Paige, 2, couldn’t stop eating it. She would have licked the bowl, if I let her. (Don’t worry, I didn’t! I swear!) But, heck, I couldn’t stop eating it either.

It’s pretty simple to make (just three healthy ingredients!). I used a low-fat yogurt, but you could use full fat, Greek, whatever you like … Just add, stir, serve … does it get any easier? Plate it up alongside some sliced apples, mini waffles or whatever else you can think of and go to town with dipping. Or just grab a spoon and eat it … It’s really delish.

    Sounds so good and totally doable! If we don’t have lime zest could you add a bit of lime juice? And if so, any idea as to how much? I’d love to try this but don’t have any fresh limes on hand!

      Emily, I think lime juice would be okay only if you are using Greek yogurt, which is thicker. It could be too loose if you use the juice with regular ol’yogurt. As for amount, I would add it 1/4 tsp at a time, until you get a level of lime flavor that you like.

  2. I love the fact that the dip is actually healthy! What a great recipe. :)

    Funny about Will – and amazing at the same time. I like the simple, easy recipes. They are the ones that somehow keep coming back to my plate, even with all the other ‘fancy’ stuff.
