Clean Eating Christmas Chip Dip – A very healthy and filling party dish!

It’s Christmas time which means lots of parties, reunions and get togethers. While there’s nothing wrong with healthy treats (such as Poppy Seed Bread, Secret Ingredient Hot Cacao and Last Minute Christmas Bark) it is also nice to bring something a little more filling from time to time. That’s one reason we love this Christmas Chip Dip! It’s very healthy, very filling and has pretty green and red colors. How can you beat that?!

Among many other benefits pomegranates help prevent heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and cell damage. They also bring the gorgeous red to this dish! Avocados are well known as a healthy fat and are the green in this glorious dish. We also found some green olives that are NOT marinated. They taste just like the black olives! If you can’t find any though you can of course use all black. The beans and rice are really what make it filling and bring good fiber. Put this with some organic corn chips or organic crackers and you have the perfect healthy snack.

Dip

2 cups cooked black beans
2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
1 avocado, sliced
½ cup black olives, sliced
½ cup green olives, sliced
1 cup cooked rice
arils from 1 pomegranate

Gently stir together all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour in dressing and gently stir to coat. Serve immediately with organic corn chips.

Dressing

½ cup olive oil
¼ red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. honey (or more to taste)

Place all ingredients in a Mason jar and shake well.

    Dip? This looks like a meal to me :-). I was just learning about some of the health benefits of pomegranates, I definitely will be adding them to my diet.
