It doesn't get any easier than this 15-minute dish, which combines fresh avocado with lime juice, tomato and cilantro.

4. Chunky Curry Kabocha Squash Dip

Sweet roasted winter squash makes a fantastic base for a healthy dip.

5. Tomato Salsa with Cucumber "Chips"

This healthy salsa is delicious served right after it's made, but the flavors meld nicely after a day or two in the refrigerator.

8. Cool Ranch Kale Dip

Serve this tangy buttermilk dip with a mix of fresh crudité (such as cucumber spears, radishes, carrots, endive, etc.) and pita chips or seeded breadsticks. Wash and cut your veggies the day before and store in the fridge for easy day-of assembly.
