Time is of the essence and so is flavor. This dip ticks both boxes in one food-styled swoosh: Fresh basil and lime provide backup harmony for this bright edamame dip with a little help from some of our favorite spices. The best part? You can be in and out of the kitchen in the time it takes to listen to Up First. Just be warned: There’s no dipping out quietly with this dish  — it’s the life of any party or meal. 

Pro tips: 

  • Buy multi color radishes with stems on if possible; they will make your platter as gorgeous as it is tasty. 
  • When adjusting the seasoning, taste the dip with radishes instead of a spoon to get a true taste of the final product.
