A white bean dip that is very light as well as refreshing.  It has a very Mediterranean flavor as it is seasoned with fresh Meyer lemons, rosemary and green garlic.

The third appetizer we have for our Super Bowl Healthy Eats Series is this yummy white bean dip that is flavored with meyer lemons, garlic and rosemary.  I like to serve it with an assortment of fresh vegetables as well as toasted baguette;  but, to keep it healthy and in check with our Ten in 10 Healthy Challenge I am serving it with some organic baby carrots I picked up from Happy Boy Farms.  Whatever you decide to serve it with, it will be a crowd pleaser at your Super Bowl party.
