It’s the season of holiday parties, game days, and other special events that center around getting together with friends, family, and finger foods. Eliminate the stress of an elaborate spread with a simple and creamy pesto bean dip that comes together in just minutes.

Inspired by a winter Caprese salad, this appetizer combines plain Greek yogurt with pureéd white cannellini beans, pesto, and sundried tomatoes to lighten up the amount of dairy as well as add nutrition. This dip can be served immediately or chilled for super-quick preparation which is great if you’re running late.

For a creamier effect, pesto bean dip can also be heated up while still preserving the probiotic qualities of the yogurt. To do this, warm it in a saucepan just until it’s warmed through but not hot. Serve alongside a variety of tasty dippers like crispy crackers and an assortment of vegetables for a healthy snack.
