Summer is for poolside fun, and this make-ahead dip will help ease those swimming munchies! Here’s Katie with her recipe (and join me in congratulating her on the recent arrival of her sweet daughter, Madeline Joy).
14 slices Center cut bacon, cooked and chopped (about 1 cup crumbled)
1 (8 oz) pkg Low fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup 2% Shredded cheese
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Salt
2 cups Chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup Chopped roma tomatoes
In a medium bowl, mix half of the crumbled bacon (7 pieces) with the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, cheddar, and seasonings, (I used a hand beater to mix until creamy). Spread in the bottom of 8 inch serving dish. Sprinkle the lettuce, tomato, and the rest of the bacon on top.
Serve with fresh veggies, pita, or baked chips if desired. Store in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
