About this recipe: Few foods can be healthier than raw vegetable sticks, so make the most of them by serving them with tempting low-fat dips for a snack or instead of a formal first course. Or, for a light lunch, these quantities will serve 4. You could also offer a selection of fruit and warm pitta bread for dipping, as well as vegetables.
