I am a sucker for chips and dips – I would probably prefer to just snack than to have a proper meal but as we all know chips and dips isn’t exactly the healthiest thing to have for dinner!

Over the weekend I made this fabulous healthy chip & dip platter with kale chips, sweet potato and potato chips, salsa fresco, blueberry salsa and seriously good guacamole. This was the best chip and dip platter I’ve ever had – perfect with a glass of wine, or two!
