I think New Year’s Eve calls for snacks - lots of chips, dips, veggies, and assorted bites to graze on through the evening. Even though most of us are celebrating at home this New Year’s Eve, you can still make the evening fun and memorable with delicious food and drinks. This Apricot Curry Dip is a perfect addition to your snack spread, with new flavors for the new year!
I love the earthy flavor of yellow curry powder. Paired with the sweet, yet tart dried apricots, and freshness of the green onions, this curry dip is bold and bright. The mango chutney adds additional tang and spice, but if you don’t have or can’t find mango chutney, substitute apricot jam instead. I do recommend finding mango chutney though - it’s widely available in most grocery stores. Once you try it, you’ll definitely find more uses for it! It’s amazing in grilled cheese, on sandwiches, or on top of roasted vegetables.
Serve this dip with your favorite crackers, chips, and/or veggies for dipping. Leftover dip (if there is any!) would make a great sandwich spread. Cheers to you, and cheers to health, happiness, and many Joyful Platefuls in the new year!
