Recipe: Parmesan Yogurt Dip with Carrots

​​​​Serves 8

​​Zesty dip turns carrots into something special. Of course, if you run out of carrots, you could use another favorite vegetable. Greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt, which is why Adam uses it here; you can get it at most supermarkets.
