Hey guys, I'm going to a bbq on the weekend and I'm looking for 3 or 5 dip recipes that you have personally tried

I like all veggies and I do have a food processor

I have also made this: https://www.abundantharvestorganics.com/recipes.php?id=93 Some will argue that tahini isn't Paleo, but it can be left out if you choose to. I think it adds tons of flavor and 2 Tbs of Tahini in an occasional dip isn't a deal breaker.

I haven't ventured that far yet. Every time I pick up a bag, it has unacceptable ingredients in it and haven't looked into making my own. I sure did love them when I was a kid, though!

I use sour cream and salsa. Pork rinds make a decent chip.

If you do dairy, put a brick of organic cream cheese (read the labels...some have awful additives) and salsa into the food processor. I served this and a huge bowl of homemade guacamole at my son's birthday party with a platter of veggies. It was all cleaned up, even with no chips!

Aside from fresh salsas (so many to choose from) or guacamole? You could do a homemade eggplant dip (like baba ghanoush), our creamed spinach with artichokes (uses coconut milk for the cream - think like Houston's spinach artichoke dip), or our spicy salmon (or shrimp) and use that as a dip. These are in our book (Paleo Comfort Foods).

I love a good Green Goddess dip - Greek yoghurt, fresh parsley, cilantro, 2 avocadoes, chives, spices (cumin, salt, pepper, chile powder), lemon juice & red wine vinegar. Goes great with veggies like carrots and red bell pepper. Lots of recipes on the web for this.

I make my own "Ranch" too - half sour cream, half mayo, roasted garlic & toasted onion powders (from Williams-Sonoma), salt, pepper, dried italian blend, dash of paprika.

When we were going camping a few weeks ago I blended softened/room temp cream cheese, some sour cream, a little mayo, a bunch of goat cheese, finely chopped red bell pepper, fresh parsley and spices. It was random and really good!

What about baba ganoush? I haven't made it personally, but I've been eyeing it every week it seems.

Romesco sauce is great - just ditch the bread

My uncle makes this absolutely amazing thing called "BLT Dip." It's calorie dense, but un-freakin'-believable. Sour cream, minced bacon, chopped tomato, chopped lettuce (last added), black pepper. So delicious.

If you do dairy, there are a plethora of dips - I just made one that was part sour cream, part homemade mayo, garlic powder, 1 lb of bacon and chopped tomatoes. Went great with celery!

Otherwise, I would think about which veggies can be pureed and served cold. I know carrots + olive oil + garlic + cumin + salt = a classic middle eastern dip. You can also mix crab meat with mayo and green onions and garlic and serve it hot and bubbly. Add parmesan if cheese is okay.

I have tried neither of these, but they look awesome:
