A high bennie version of a classic dip for Type O Secretors! I make this large batch up at the start of the week and take a little tub of it to work most days in a lunchbox with dippers (sliced peppers/baby carrots/sprouted broccoli/string beans etc), some protein (chicken/beef/fish) and a frozen tetra pack of pineapple juice (keeps it all cold). Maybe an oatcake and a Ryvita too. Yum!
