Basic Greek Yogurt Dip

Snacks. Everybody loves 'em. Amiright?

When heading to a summer potluck recently, I knew everyone was going to bring chips. Everybody loves those too. To be a little different, I brought veggies and this basic Greek yogurt dip.

Alright, I know a veggie tray is hardly revolutionary. This dip clocks in at a whopping' 90 calories per serving though. Nice and light.

So, yeah. Not a crazy new idea, but a delicious, healthy alternative to the rest of the chips and dips on the table at a party.

This is super easy to throw together before people come over or before you run out the door. I did go for some extra over-achiever-points by cutting the tops off some red bell peppers to serve the dip in. #fancy

I adapted the recipe a little from the original at Foodie With Family.

Crudite tip: Think outside carrots and celery. I love noshing on broccoli, bell pepper, and cauliflower. The radish and endive made the tray pretty, but were less popular choices. Maybe your crowd will be bigger radish fans than my peeps were.

Basic Greek Yogurt Dip
From: Foodie With Family
Time: about 30 minutes (including chopping all the veggies)
Servings: about 8-10

- 17.6 oz container of plain Greek yogurt
- 3 Tsp dried parsley flakes
- 3 Tsp garlic powder
- 2 Tsp onion powder
- 3/4 Tsp paprika (I used sweet, but hot would make for a fun variation)
- 1/2 Tsp salt
- 1/2 Tsp black pepper
- 3 Tbps dehydrated onion flakes

Stir all ingredients into your Greek yogurt. Taste and adjust to your liking. (More garlic, perhaps?)

Let dip sit in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes before serving so the flavors can meld and the dehydrated onions absorb some moisture.

Serve with your preferred veggie(s), crackers, whatever you want to dip!
