This one is a snack that may be prepared in advance and it doesn’t take long to prepare. It’s a great snack to satisfy those munchies for something crunchy when you’re on a gaming marathon.
There are very little ingredients needed for the dip itself:
- 1 can of tuna (I always use the one in saltwater, not the oily one)
- 1 onion
- either of these: plain yoghurt, cream cheese, creme fraîche, sour cream
- spices – dried herbs, freshly ground pepper, some salt, paprika
Drain the tuna, roughly dice the onion and put everything together with your base of choice in a blender. This time, I used a mix of yoghurt and cream cheese. Be careful though, yoghurt makes it more liquid so you only want to add 1-2 tbsp. The taste with yoghurt is lighter, though. Personally, I think Creme Fraîche gives it just the right texture, but it’s also more fattening. But that’s really up to you, whatever is at hand and whatever you like better.
Mix well, then add the spices to taste. Serve with Veggie Sticks and Saltine Crackers. I used carrots and Kohlrabi (cabbage turnip?!) and usually would use cucumber sticks as well, but I was out of cucumbers.
Hint: While you may buy pre-cut veggie sticks at the store, you can always cut your veggies ahead and store them in a tupper ware, covered in cold water. That will keep the veggies from drying out and they will taste fresh when you serve them.
