Vegetable crudities with jalapeno dipping sauce

Lynnda Cloutier


The heat of a jalapeno spices up this refreshing dip. A tangy alternative with less heat would be to substitute the teaspoon of lime juice for the jalapeno. Dig in with any of your favorite vegetables, such as carrots, asparagus, red pepper slices, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, celery, or fennel. My personal favorite is pea pods. Serves 8 to 10
