Spring Green Labaneh Dip
Updated: Jun 19
Keeping up with my green theme for the week and trying to trick spring and the earth to bloom in the Midwest. I present to you the green Labaneh dip. Loaded with peas, avocados, fresh mint sprinkled with green peppercorns making for a refreshing spring edition. This is so delicious with pita chips, crudités or even as a base for sandwiches. Btw Mid week snacking is a thing don’t let people tell you otherwise. Pack it for lunches they will all be green with envy. Happy green ☘️💚💚 week friends #almondandfiggreenweek
