An easy recipe for a tasty homemade Greek yogurt dip that goes perfectly with cut up veggies, cheese crisps or plain pork rinds.
This wonderfully flavorful Greek yogurt dip is so creamy. It is perfectly seasoned! I make a fresh batch every few days because we go through them really fast.
How to serve Greek yogurt dip
It’s perfect with fresh cut veggies for dipping, or with plain pork rinds. I make this Greek yogurt dip quite often for my kids. They love dipping baby carrots into it.
But I also make this dip for our grown-up guests, serving it surrounded by cheese crisps, plain pork rinds or salami chips and cut up veggies. And not just for guests – this is actually one of my favorite lunches.
You can obviously replace the Greek yogurt with sour cream if you prefer. Not surprisingly, it’s tastier and creamier with sour cream. Although if you use full-fat Greek yogurt, the difference is not very noticeable. And Greek yogurt does have the advantage of being very healthy.
Personally, I wouldn’t use low-fat or nonfat yogurt here. It just won’t be as good.
How to season Greek yogurt dip
I use Celtic sea salt because I think it’s delicious. You can obviously use any salt you like when making this recipe.
You can also vary your seasonings. I really like cumin and chili powder, but I’m thinking that smoked paprika and oregano would be great too. And if you don’t have fresh herbs – cilantro or parsley – simply omit them and use dried herbs instead. 1/2 teaspoon per herb sounds about right.
How long can I keep this Greek yogurt dip?
Greek yogurt dip keeps well in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 4-5 days. It’s also very portable. I pack it in lunches in small containers with an ice pack, and it stays fresh for several hours.
