This dip is a new secret weapon in my dip arsenal. Perfect for spring and summer, this pistachio dip has a gorgeous green colour and velvety-smooth consistency. 

The real delight is how quick and easy it is to make – simply pop 9 ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth and voila! Perfect, creamy deliciousness in under 10 minutes.

If you’re a fan of hummus, tahini sauce or baba ganoush, this is the recipe for you! Pistachios, feta and yoghurt form the creamy, fatty base of the dip, while mint, lemon, chilli and garlic add freshness, spice and depth.  

Quick and easy to make

This dip takes absolutely no time at all and is truly delicious served with crudites or my quick and easy flatbread, accompanied by a refreshing cocktail.
