We were provided with a promotional item from Way Better Snacks to facilitate this post about healthy Holiday Snacks.
The holidays are filled with chocolate, cream cheese and butter. I know I am guilty you can see my previous posts for a lot of guitly pleasures this time of year. So I was excited to partner with Way Better Snacks on a recipe creation project for their 12 Days of Holiday Snacking. I created a healthy Holiday dip of Black Bean, Corn and Feta Cheese which is so good and was given to me by a friend several years ago but I have never made it.
This is the perfect sweet but salty dip to accompany all the fatty appetizers and sweets on your holiday table. Make a double batch as this will go fast plus gets better the longer it sits in the fridge. I should have doubled the recipe for my event because I am craving it the day after and it disappeared in 30 minutes, no kidding.
The ingredients are simple and you might have some of them on hand. If you don’t be sure to keep them on hand for the holidays for an easy and healthy Holiday snacks options.
You will need a can of black beans, a can of white shoepeg corn, feta cheese, cider vinegar, sugar, and green onions.
Just plop them all in a bowl, stir gently. Cover and allow the flavors to meld in the fridge at least a few hours.
Don’t just serve any chips, consider pairing the black bean, corn and feta dip with Way Better Snacks. These healthy snacks incorporate sprouted ingredients like flaxseed, chia seeds, quinoa, black beans, broccoli seeds and daikon radish seeds. So there is an added benefit for snacking this holiday season.
