Sweet and Spicy Dip

This sweet and spicy dip is made with tomato, cilantro, lime juice, and other healthy ingredients. It pairs especially well with corn tortilla chips but can also be enjoyed with baby carrots, celery sticks, and other veggies.

I originally made this dip as a vinaigrette dressing for my black bean salad recipe. Because I liked the dressing so much, I started making extra as a dip for tortilla chips and fresh veggies.

I love the fact that this dip is so healthy yet so incredibly savory!
