A few weeks ago, I presented you with a roundup post called Bite It: 15 Healthier Bite-sized Party Food Recipes.

But bites aren’t the only party food that deserve a healthier makeover for your next dinner party. Because what’s a party appetizer spread without a good assortment of dips?!

Which of these dip recipes would you dive into first?

    I’m all about yogurt dips, and tzatziki has always been a favorite! Plan ahead a little for this one – it’s not much work but you’ll need to strain the yogurt and the cucumber in the fridge overnight.

And as a bonus, because 15 just wasn’t quite enough, these Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Ranch Dip are another really delicious option. Perfect for your next Mexican-inspired dinner party!

Happy dipping!
