Rosemary-Pistachio Spread/Dip

Pista Rosemary dip1

About:

This healthy, delicious dip/spread is made with olive oil, low-fat Greek yogurt that’s been infused with fresh garlic and rosemary and puréed until it’s smooth and creamy. It can be easily dressed up by topping it with a handful of toasted nuts.

It’s also good as a spread for sandwiches or burgers. The pistachio add a little crunchy element that is missing from a lot of dips. A fresh rosemary gave a really nice Mediterranean taste and I actually found it better than the usual recipe.

I used this spread for making Indo-Italian Tacos (Recipe click here)
