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 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 grownup guests, serving it surrounded by cheese crisps, plain pork rinds and cut up veggies.
You can obviously replace the Greek yogurt with sour cream if you prefer. It’s tastier and creamier with sour cream, although if you use full fat Greek yogurt, the difference is not very noticeable.
I wouldn’t use low fat yogurt here, it just won’t be as good.
Greek yogurt dip keeps well in the fridge for several days. It’s also very portable – I pack it in lunches in small containers with a ice pack, and it stays fresh for several hours.
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.
