The holiday season is busy. For me, there are parties, events and gatherings of every sort. All of which I love but it can be hard to eat healthy this time of year when you have bacon wrapped everything and cookies galore. Which is why when it comes to snacking this holiday season, I’m being extra good! Pairing these tortillas or pita chips that are sprouted with ingredients like flaxseed, chia seeds, quinoa, black beans, broccoli seeds and daikon radish alongside a homemade dip, salsa or hummus…it makes snacking not only delish but healthier.
One of my favorite healthy veggie snacks that I like to make, year around, and pair with the Way Better ® Snacks, Black Bean Corn Tortilla chips is what I call, Garden Goodness. Yumminess from the garden!
The dip is very easy to make, it looks festive and it tastes even better!
- ½ Red Sweet Onion
- 4-6 Green Onions
- ½ Avocado
- ½ Yellow Pepper
- ½ Red Pepper
- ½ Orange Pepper
- 2 Roman Tomatoes
- 1 Can of Corn (you can use fresh cut of the cob, you’ll need 1 cup total)
- 1 Can of Black Bean, drained very well
- Crumbled Feta, to taste
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Fresh Parsley, to taste
- Wash and then dice all of your fresh vegetables. Make sure you dice them fine or use a vegetable chopper.
- Drain corn and black beans and mix together.
- Add the freshly diced vegetables to the corn and black beans and mix gently.
- Drizzle honey over the mixture, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the mixture
- Garnish with fresh parsley.
- Serve with Way Better® Snacks, Black Bean Corn Tortilla Chips.
The best part of this recipe is that you can experiment or omit different ingredients. If you don’t like onions, omit these and add diced cucumbers instead. I like to add the sweet red onion because of the color! If you’re serving a large crowd, feel free to dice up the entire pepper, avocado and onion and add more black beans and corn. There is no “exact” or wrong way to make this healthy dip. The dip is not only delicious; it looks beautiful and can be paired with any of the Way Better® Snacks tortillas or pita chips. You can even serve this mixture over rice and make a meal out of it! The possibilities are endless!
Disclaimer: I created this recipe for Way Better® Snacks but I was not compensated other than with delicious chips and payment to purchase the ingredients. I genuinely love their product and hope you do too!

Mmmmm…..I would gobble that up in a heartbeat! Plus I LOVE Way Better Snacks.
We’ve tried those chips! My husband really likes them. Love idea of a salad that doubles as a dip. Great way to get kids to dig in.
This would make a great lunch, I bet it gets more flavorful as it sits!
That sounds super good! We love the Way Better Snacks too.
I want to eat the monitor right now! The images got me running to the grocery store. Hope my salad turns as good as yours. Garden Goodness exactly what I’d call it. Perfect for any meal of the day. Just shared it with my colleagues at the marketing team of http://domesticcleaners.co.uk and I bet the girls will love it – fresh, healthy, perfect for our dieting periods which occur every now and then. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm….
It is great over rice! Yum!
The chips are amazing! We have a stocked cabinet full of them. I eat them with hummus, dips, alone, etc.
Great brand to work with and I only say that because I love their product too! This is so easy to make and my family loves it. My husband and I fight for it. LOL!
It looks great when you bring it to a party too! =)
