Little Leaf Farms - dipping dressingLemon Pesto Dipping Dressing

This zesty dressing combines yogurt, lemon juice and pesto, one of the season’s standouts, for a dip that’s both bright and creamy. You can use store-bought pesto (if your basil didn’t do so well this year – it happens!) and just add salt and pepper to taste. Get the recipe here…

Add this dressing to your repertoire and bust it out when you’re looking for something with a silky smooth texture and slightly nutty flavor. The blend of tahini, garlic, cider vinegar, honey mustard and turmeric complements pretty much all the veggies but especially those fresh greens. Get the recipe here…

Fresh dill, lemon and one small shallot do a lot of the heavy lifting in this rich-yet-refreshing, ricotta-based dip. Just toss everything in a food processor and whip it all together (it’s ok if the texture is a little runny) for a creamy dip with an extra bit of herb-y zip. Get the recipe here…
