Next time you want to nibble on a healthy dip, skip the dairy based varieties which can pack on extra calories.   This lighter but full-flavored version of hummus, a traditional Mediterranean dip, is a great source of of heart healthy mono-unsaturated fat and lean protein.  It’s made without all the salt and extra calories from the usual ingredients of oil and tahini (what you often get in store-bought varieties), and comes together in mere minutes.
