Use fresh vegetables on hand for this tasty nacho dip

Every now and then I have a craving for Mexican-inspired food. This nacho dip is one of my favourite ways to appease that craving especially in summer as it requires no cooking.

The fresh vegetables in this recipe can be substituted with whatever is in your fridge or garden that needs using up. This past weekend I used crisp yellow sweet pepper, chopped cilantro and green onions from the garden. It was delicious!

You can make this dip as mild or spicy as you like by using mild, medium or hot salsa. Choose light cream cheese and sour cream for fewer calories – I always use light cream cheese for dips because it is creamier than regular.

If you are making this dip for a party you can make it several hours ahead and refrigerate or make it and dig right in.
