Grilled Vegetables with Herby Yogurt Dip

Mar 18, 2023 | Side Dish

Spring is finally here! With each new seasonal transition comes a new harvest of fruits and vegetables. Spring brings in a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables that can help us to feel more energized and looking forward to the warmer months ahead.

Spring into shape by expanding your culinary horizons and incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your meals.

  • Cold salads are an easy place to start: Load your salad with nutrients coming from salad greens, tomatoes, nuts, cucumbers and fruits.
  • Give your spring salad a protein boost with hard boiled egg, tuna fish, edamame, tofu, cheese or grilled chicken.
  • Try crunchy vegetables instead of chips with your favorite low-fat yogurt dressing for dipping.
  • Keep cut vegetables handy for mid-afternoon snacks, side dishes, lunch box additions or a quick nibble while waiting for dinner.
  • Ready to eat favorites include red, green or yellow peppers, broccoli or cauliflower florets, carrots and cucumbers!
