Eyes Without a Face by Billy Idol is slowly playing from my computer as I relax in my back yard thinking of a snack that I can make for a friend of mine that is coming over. I’m sipping on a Johnnie Walker Platinum Label “up” getting ready to enjoy a Padron.

I want to make something that is tasty as well as nutritious. Snack time should be taken just as seriously as any meal you eat. I want protein to satisfy and taste that makes me shiver. I know! I will use greek yogurt!

She will be here soon so I will tell you..

What You Will Need:

1 Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt, divided

4 Tbsp Hummus (I have a great recipe for hummus, just use the search bar.), divided

1 Tsp Olive Oil, divided

4 Tsp Lemon Zest, divided

16 Chick peas, divided

1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds, divided

1 Tsp Lemon Thyme, divided

Pinch of Sea Salt

Pinch of Black Pepper

This dip is sooooo easy to make that you wont need to do any Mis en Place prep. Sigh….. I love Mis en Place prep work.

In two separate bowls, add in 1/2 C greek yogurt

1/2 the chick peas

1/2 the hummus

1/2 the olive oil

1/2 the lemon zest

1/2 the sesame seeds

1/2 the lemon thyme and

a pinch of sea salt and black pepper to each.
