I put 1 Tablespoon Onion soup mix in 1/2 cup yogurt as a dip for a vegetable plate this evening.
I loved it and didn't feel guilty.

I made my own hummus for the Christmas. I made one that was plain/lemon and one that was avocado. I found the recipe on SP. My cousin said that he doesn't like hummus, and that you could buy some from the store, and none of them are as good as mine

I found a spicy hummus and garlic humus that I love.

You ever try tatziki? It's Greek yogurt with chopped cucumbers & dill. Delicious and super healthy!

But I use the air-scare quotes because I think a good answer to the question is the general notion of something hummus-like: (a) a legume, somewhat cooked and then mashed, (b) some salt but a lot of herbs, (c) and a little oil to help emulsify. So in addition to a more traditional chickpea, and parsley-cilantro hummus with sesame oil and tahini, I'd also recommend black beans, pinto beans (almost like a refried bean hummus!), lentils, or even soy beans. Substitute peanut butter for the tahini. Definitely add the roasted red pepper or even roasted tomatoes ...
You get something delicious with healthy fats and a good amount of protein and fiber that you can whip up in five or ten minutes if the legumes are already cooked.

Hummus is a good idea, but sometimes I like bringing something that I've actually made. I love to cook for other people and don't get to do it that often :) Maybe I'll try the Greek yougurt/ranch idea...maybe add some spinach?

I second the hummus. this is my go-to recipe: http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/2010/05/ hummus-four-flavors-197-recipe-039.html
I usually make the roasted red pepper hummus or make one by adding fresh spinach leaves.

Hummus is the easiest one, you could just buy it at the store :) Also, I've not tried it yet, but some folks mix a ranch dressing seasoning packet with greek yogurt.
