Yogurt-Flax Oil Dip

Share

This simple, delicious dip is a perfect complement for raw vegetables. It provides friendly bacteria from the yogurt to help digestion and omega-3 fatty acids from the flax oil, which are essential for many body functions. Add flavour with fresh, finely chopped dill-the more dill, the better the taste-or add a generous amount of finely chopped chives.

1 cup (250 ml) natural plain yogurt
4 Tbsp (60 ml) cold-pressed flax oil
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
Fresh dill or chives, chopped. Herbal salt, such as Herbamare or Spike, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Serve with cherry tomatoes, radishes, celery, carrots, broccoli or any other summer vegetables.

Variation: Mix freshly grated horseradish into the yogurt. The taste will be a surprise for your palate, and the horseradish will act as an antibiotic for the kidneys and urinary tract.
