I love using World Harbors premade marinades when grilling steak or fish or making Beer Can Chicken, but was always frustrated when I had a shelf of half-used up bottles in the refrigerator. So I started to experiment and realized that World Harbors can also be turned into great dips! You don’t have to use their marinades straight from the bottle either. Instead you can combine them with low fat sour cream, Greek yogurt or my favorite tofu sour cream to make yummy and somewhat healthy dips.
My family and I tried the Maui Mountain Sweet ‘n’ Sour two ways – plain and with no fat lemon flavored yogurt on a 1:1 ratio – with our sweet potato fries. Hands down both dips were a hit with my family, so I encourage you to experiment with other flavors. For example:
- Honey Dijon, Lemon Pepper or Italian would all be terrific with veggie sticks as a party snack. Again, combine the marinade with sour cream, yogurt, etc. for your guests!
- Island Mango would be wonderful for French fries or sweet potato fries.
- Just about any World Harbors marinades combined with yogurt or sour cream would go great with pretzels, too!
If you have children who are reluctant to eat their veggies, serve up your World Harbor dip alongside their dinner plates in small ramekins. Kids can use fondue forks, toothpicks, skewers or regular forks to dip their veggies in the marinades. I bet they’ll like it so much that they’ll ask for veggies and World Harbors dip during snack time!
Also, you can combine fruit flavored yogurt with a sweet marinade, like Island Mango, for a fun dip for apple slices, grapes, sliced strawberries, and so on.
