Finding new, fresh dip ideas can be a challenge. Finding ones that are both healthy and tasty can make the search even harder, since the basis for most dips is mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese or other creamy, high-fat foods. Fortunately, low-fat and fat-free alternatives exist. Mayonnaise, soy sauce and scallions may seem like an odd combination, but the resulting dip has a tangy, rich taste that is perfect for fresh vegetables.

Step 1

Put 2 cups fat-free mayonnaise into a large bowl. Two cups is appropriate for a party of a dozen people or so. Adjust the measurements according to how many people you need to feed.

Step 2

Add 1/4 cup of soy sauce and about 1/4 tsp, of dried ginger to the mayo. Mix them together with a spoon, and then taste the dip. Adjust the proportions to suit your individual taste.

Step 3

Wash a bunch of scallions in cool water, and dry them well with paper towels. Set them on a cutting board, and slice off the bottom ends. Chop three to four scallions, or until you have about 1/2 cup.
