A definite crowd pleaser and kid-friendly too! You’ll be thrilled to know they’re eating healthy greens and carrots before dinner.
For additional crunch, you may also add in chopped water chestnuts.
Carrot and Spinach Dip is best when it’s chilled for a few hours before serving; or chilled overnight is even better! Serve it with plenty of your favorite thin breads, crackers or veggie sticks. This is basically my version of a spinach dip with more healthy raw vegetables in it.
So amazingly good- you’ll want to make it often! But don’t take our word for it- you’ll have to try it.

Using an electric chopper or mini-prep plus by Cuisinart and pulse the carrots, celery and red onion until they are shredded and minced very finely. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
