My kids have always seemed to love to dip things. When my son Max was just a little guy
we dined at restaurant that served fresh vegetables and dip. He absolutely LOVED it, but was really using the vegetables as a spoon for the dip- not actually eating them! When our waiter checked on our table and asked if we needed anything Max uttered his first complete sentence: “More dip Please”. We were all a little shocked that he said what he said so clearly… so we let him have more dip .
It is really nice to serve some dips in individual bowls for each diner. This way you can somewhat control portion (trust me, with kids like mine this can be important- this way half of the dip bowl doesn’t disappear with two carrot
sticks) and if they double dip, it doesn’t matter. I have tons of cute little bowls that I sometimes use for this purpose but they seem to pile up quickly if you are serving a crowd.
One solution that I absolutely love is edible dip bowls! Cucumbers, zucchini, squash, and tomatoes all work well for this. The best part is, when you eat all of your dip you can enjoy eating the bowl too!
- 1 medium cucumber
