Bring on the flavors!

Spring brings us the promise of fresh food, especially vegetables. And that means dips!

Among the most popular condiments in the US, dips are also served with tortillas and crackers, chips and pitas, cubed meets and cheeses. They are an easily and quickly prepared party food, bringing flavor and texture to your favorite snack. Homemade dips are so much better than ones that come out of a can. So think about spring picnics, graduation parties, or just your healthy snacks, and use Daregal herbs to flavor your dips. Here are a few tips from us to spice up your table:
