Smoky Onion Kale Dip

You know what’s even better than spinach artichoke dip? Smoky Onion and Kale dip!

With lots of summer cookouts coming up, I wanted to create a lightened-up dip that I could bring to parties that everyone (even meat eaters) could enjoy. The smokiness of this dip evokes a meaty, hearty taste, and the kale brings a great texture that you can’t get with spinach dip.

The unexpected ingredient in this recipe is Organic Chipotle Mayo, and honestly I’m not usually a fan of Mayo. But when the folks at Hellman’s asked me to try their new line of Organic Mayo – I was surprised as to how natural the ingredients were. This mayo gives the dip a spicy kick, the perfect complement to the kale and onions.

It’s super simple and easy to make, and can be served with crusty bread, whole grain crackers, or baked tortilla chips.

It’s perfect for a family gathering or any summer party!
