I made a healthy Breaded Zucchini Stick recipe some time ago.  Here is a healthy Easy Herb Green Goddess Dip that would be the perfect dipping sauce for the bread sticks or fresh veggies as I used.  This recipe is a wonderful appetizer to take to any event or house when you are asked to bring an appetizer.  This Green Goddess Dip falls into the same healthy and easy category as the baked breaded zucchini sticks.  Combine some fresh herbs with a dressing of fat free Greek yogurt, a little bit of mayonnaise, some olive oil and some goat cheese and you have it.

Green Goddess Dip

The recipe was quite flavorful.  What I also loved about it was choosing different food things to dip into it.  The dressing is sturdy so it held up well to raw zucchini and raw yellow squash.  I really like the crunch from the zucchini and squash.  Be careful not to double dip.  Who ever saw the Seinfeld episode with George Double Dipping at the funeral?  You have to admit, it is a concept we have all seen at parties.  I rather not see it and it is certainly a deterrent from going back for seconds to the dip.

The other item I served with the Green Goddess Dip was some Baked PitaYUM.  I love baking pita and turning them into chips.  The only problem now is that my wife and I are trying a gluten free diet.  This pita recipe was from quite some time ago and well before we started our new diet.  Making pita chips is so easy especially when buying pita at the store.  Simply cut the pita in triangles, drizzle with olive oil and some Kosher or sea salt and bake until crisp.
