This seasoned potato recipe with yogurt dipping sauce was inspired by products I received to review at no charge however all opinions expressed here are my own. One of the things I love most about the holidays is the opportunity to get together with family and friends. Whether it is a big Thanksgiving dinner, a Christmas Eve gathering by the tree or a Saturday afternoon of watching football, having family and friends around makes the season a happier one! In my house, having guests over means that I must feed them. Not that they demand it (or at least not all the time!)…but something ingrained in my psyche says that if there are people visiting then I must cook for them. I love finding easy appetizer recipes that are also healthy. Not that I don’t love a good bowl of queso or a plate of fried cheese sticks but I tend to feel a bit ‘blah’ after I am done eating my fill.
When I was asked to create an appetizer recipe that combined Simply Organic spices and Stonyfield Farm yogurt I was excited about the challenge. I almost always cut the fat in my dips by swapping some of the mayo or sour cream with yogurt. Doing this is a simple way to eat healthier without making a huge sacrifice in flavor. I find that the addition of Stonyfield Farm Greek yogurt gives the dip a tangy flavor that is absolutely delicious. Organic herbs and spices make a yogurt dip an even tastier way to snack.
French fries are always a huge hit for munching on during a football game but the ‘fried’ part of that name means that they aren’t always the healthiest choice. Also, many of the packaged French fries on the market today are very heavily processed. For a food that should simply contain ‘potatoes’, if you look at the ingredient list you will often find a lot more than that! With just a bit of olive oil and some Simply Organic spices I created a plate full of delicious homemade herb seasoned potato wedges that went perfectly with the spicy yogurt dip I made. Instead of fried and processed we ate baked and natural! The holidays should always include less guilt and more snacking!
