  • ¼ cup onion, diced
  • ¼ cup celery, diced


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until creamy and mixed thoroughly.

This can also be a filling in a lettuce wrap, or for Stepwise/Maintenance low carb tortillas. This also makes a delicious dip for cucumbers, celery, peppers, carrots etc.
