Almost everyone loves spinach dip, but the same can't be said for the appetizer's calorie count, which can clock in at 280 calories for a 1/4-cup (four-tablespoon) serving. At your next holiday party, please taste buds and diet plans alike by swapping the calorie-busting spinach dip with this kale ricotta dip. It tastes almost as creamy and just as delicious — seriously, you'll be surprised. And at only 24 calories per 1/4-cup serving (not to mention a good dose of vitamin A), it's practically guilt free. Serve with sliced veggies or baked pita chips and save even more calories!

The resulting dip is so good I couldn't help but wonder, "why didn't I think of this?!" If you've got time, make your own salsa, but when you need an app fast, simply pour your favorite store-bought salsa over the goat cheese and pop it in the oven. For a festive Fourth of July spin, serve the red and white dip, hot from the oven, with blue corn tortilla chips. Here's the scrumptious recipe!
Hummus has always been a staple snack for all my parties, but since it's so popular, it can get boring. Here's a twist on that basic recipe. You'll find this version is slightly creamier since it's made with Greek yogurt, and the dill gives it a fresh, zippy flavor. If you have time, whip up this dip, and refrigerate it overnight — it tastes much better the next day.
1 15-ounce can of cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh dill
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh dill sprigs for garnish
- Place the beans, garlic, oil, yogurt, dill, and lemon juice in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
