Crudités with Wasabi Dip

Crudités with Wasabi Dip

Nonfat Greek yogurt blended with fresh goat cheese and spiked with wasabi makes for a luscious, thick, tangy and addictively spicy dip. In addition to the vegetables listed below, try raw kohlrabi, chayote and endive, and wax beans that are blanched until crisp-tender.


  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 4

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the wasabi powder with the water until a smooth paste forms; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the yogurt, goat cheese and sugar. Season with salt. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the broccoflower until al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool. Drain well and pat dry.
  3. To serve, arrange the broccoflower, celery, fennel and cucumber on a platter. Top the dip with the radish sprouts and serve.
  4. MAKE AHEAD The dip and vegetables can be refrigerated overnight. Cover the crudités with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap.
