on our family vacation, Thomas told me he was making a veggie dip that he thought i would like. when he said that i pictured dipping carrots into a white, sour cream type dip, which would be the exact opposite of something i would like. so i wasn't quite sold on it.
then, he made what is in the picture above. nothing like i was dreading, and super delicious! i've dubbed it veggie salsa, because it is more like a salsa than a dip. i think i ate some every day during vacation & still couldn't get enough!
the week before last, some of our friends invited us over for taco tuesday, so i figured that would be the perfect time to make our veggie salsa & enjoy it's goodness again! the recipe makes a huge bowl of it, so we had leftovers and i took it for lunch for the rest of the week!
this is probably my favorite side dish ever & i love that it's so quick to make so it will probably be showing up at family gatherings all the time now! seriously, it only takes about 5 minutes to make, so it's the perfect take-along dish for those rushed weeknight dinners. i'm sharing the recipe below, because i think everyone should be able to enjoy the deliciousness that is this veggie salsa! so, enjoy!
