Canapés pt 4 – dips and crudites

We chopped carrots, celery, cucumber and radishes as crudities, served with a variety of healthy – and extremely tasty – dips.

Salmon pate

This recipe is Syn FREE on Slimming World. It worked OK as a dip, and worked well as a pate on oatcakes and the like. The original recipe from the Slimming World website had the salmon, dairy products and lemon zest blended before adding the remaining ingredients – I didn’t and left it chunky, which was fine. And it’s important to thoroughly deseed the tomatoes to make sure the mixture is not too runny.

Ingredients
1 x 198g red salmon canned in brine
85g fat free natural yoghurt
85g fat free fromage frais
grated zest of one lemon
3 ripe tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp roughly chopped capers
1 tbsp chopped dill
Seasoning

Method
Remove any skin or bone from the salmon. Mix with the remaining ingredients. Season. Chill until ready to use.

Hummus

This recipe is Syn FREE on Slimming World.

Ingredients
1 can chickpeas, drained
fat free natural yoghurt
fresh garlic

Method
Blend the chickpeas with enough yoghurt to make a paste consistency. Add garlic to taste – blend well. Chill until ready to eat.

Herby dip

This dip is very refreshing. However, after a day chilling in the fridge the chilli flavour infused to the extent it was very spicy!

Ingredients
454g tub of fat free fromage frais
grated zest and juice of 1 lemon or lime
1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped
1 small bunch fresh mint, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped dill
Seasoning
Pinch of paprika

Method
Mix the ingredients and chill until ready for use.
