Default I need veggie dip?

Okay so... Ranch dressing has quite a bit of calories... that i'd like to cut down. So I tried hummus and I just can't ... well, I just don't enjoy it. I can eat it, but I don't like the flavor... it's just weird.... i'm sorry I wasted my money on hummus, lol.

Any other suggestions for a low-cal, healthy dip? I mainly dip things like celery, carrots, tomatos, peppers, etc.

I usually use vanilla pudding for dipping my fruit, and don't plan on changing that (as one of those little ready made cups is only 80 calories) But I really don't like how much calories is in ranch (1 tablespoon is like 70 calories)

I found a low fat hummus for very low calories, browse a health food store/section, the brand I got was Oasis Classic Cuisine and its 24 cal for 2 tbsp! I also use salsa! (its very low in calories as well!)

If I really want that ranch-dip sort of taste, I get a packet of the Hidden Valley dressing mix and mix it up with fat free sour cream. All of the ranch flavor, no fat, very few calories compared to regular ranch.

Mandalinn that's a great idea!! i will have to try that.

Jane - that's interesting, I hadn't thought about salsa. for some reason I think salsa must strictly be eaten with only tortilla chips... that's silly of me though! lol

Try baba ganoush which is just roasted eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil & tahini.. so yummy.

Nonfat greek style yogurt, lemon juice, lots of black fresh ground pepper, but of minced garlic, whatever fresh herbs are available- good with basil and mint. I usually add a trickle of very green tasting olive oil. When I eat this with veggies I feel like I am also getting in some wholesome nutrients.
