Have you jumped on the kefir bandwagon and discovered all of the amazing things you can use it in? We love these kefir smoothies, and consume them on an almost daily basis, but there's so much more to use kefir in! With our garden still producing like crazy, I sliced up some fresh vegetables and whipped up a batch of this yummy kefir veggie dip for my kid's after-school-snack. And yes all of the veggies shown in these pictures are from our garden (except the olives of course). What a great way to get your probiotics found in the kefir and all of the wonderful nutrients from the fresh vegetables.
Have you tried kefir yet?
What have you made with it?
Kefir Ranch Dressing or Veggie Dip
*Makes about 1 Cup
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
1/2 Cup kefir milk (or buttermilk if you don't have kefir)
1 Tbsp. freshly chopped parsley (or 1 tsp. dried)
1-1/2 tsp. freshly chopped onion (or 1/2 tsp. onion powder)
1 clove garlic, finely minced (or 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic)
1 tsp. freshly chopped dill weed (or 1/4 tsp. dried)
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Alternately you can pulse for a few times in a blender. Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to a week until ready to serve. Serve as a salad dressing or as a dip with fresh vegetables.
