This appetizer or snack is a perfect addition to any holiday meal. In fact, I love to make this dip all winter long especially when entertaining guests. It’s so quick and easy to make and loved by everyone; kids and adults alike. Winter squash is not only delicious but it is a great source of antioxidants, including carotenoids like beta-carotene, abundant in squash, help support the immune system and may help to protect your body from cancer. The almond butter lends protein and antioxidant vitamin E plus a whole lot of flavor.
Serve with sliced apples, cucumber, carrot sticks, whole grain crackers (I use gluten-free) or toasted bread like a whole grain or gluten-free baguette.
