Skinny Harvest Dip (aka Skinny Beach Dip)

Gotta love book club.  There’s the camaraderie. The reading.  The great food.  Recently one of our hostesses served Skinny Beach Dip—doesn’t that sound perfect for the last days of shorts season!  Loaded with sweet corn, bell and jalapeno peppers, then dressed with light cream cheese and nonfat yogurt, I would have called it Skinny Harvest Dip.  Perfect for CSA members and local eaters!

The dip has a delicious combination of contrasting flavors–sweet from the corn and spicy from the jalapenos.  It should have a little heat–enough to notice but not so hot that your husband/grandmother/favorite hot food wimp won’t eat it.  Although the recipe calls for two jalapeno peppers, I recommend tasting first since the heat will vary.

I bought three jalapenos and two we-think-they’re-probably-jalapenos at the farmer’s market.  Turned out to be the wussiest jalapenos I ever had so I added three which worked perfectly (yes, my husband did say, “this is a little spicy” without slowing down a nanosecond).  Since the heat is greater in the ribs and seeds of the pepper, you can remove or not, to adjust the level of heat.

Now to make Skinny Fall Harvest Dip truly skinny you should serve it with cut up veggies and nix the chips.  We were about to sit down in front of a preseason football game so I served both.  I wish I could say I only ate it with the veggies—maybe next time ;-)!

      It’s called skinny since it is lower in calories than many dips with the reduced fat cream cheese, nonfat yogurt and vegetables. But luckily it’s not skinny in flavor!

      Book clubs ARE awesome–and especially useful for a food blogger who has used up most of her tried and true family recipes 😉
