Dairy-Free Veggie & Bean Dip Jars

Light and refreshing, our bean dip jars with veggies makes a great summer snack. The Top 9-free dip is simply delicious, with tangy notes of tarragon and lemon. By using individual dip jars (we used mini-mason jars), they’re portable and very kid-friendly.

The kids we know love the independence of wandering about with their own jar. And with children with allergies among a group, you can also use colored containers (glass or otherwise), so that kids know: that’s my jar!

Adults love this dip, too. In fact, if they want any, they’d better grab a jar before the young veggie snackers polish it off. The dip jars make the perfect accompaniment to the fresh crunch of bright vegetables. Experiment by trying your favorite summer produce with the dip. Photo: Andrew Grinton
