Dilly Dip

The smell of fresh herbs, dill in particular, always perk me up. I’m not quite sure what it is about this herb, I think it might be that it reminds me of spring and summer picnics. Whatever the reason, it tugs at my belly.

A few years ago I stumbled upon a dill flavored dip in the refrigerated section of the supermarket, and I immediately fell in love. I think it had to do with the fact that I was on vacation at the time and that the dip was light and creamy enough to satisfy my desire to dip a chip or a veggie. Regardless of the reason, this dip grabbed my attention. Hence, the quest to recreate it at home.

Of course now due to my absolute infatuation with Greek yogurt I’ve adapted it once again, and I think this is the best version yet. This recipe couldn’t simpler, but yet it is full of flavor. The herbs will fill your nose and make you want to grab your swimsuit and dive on in. Yum! 

Shopping List:

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1/4 cup light sour cream

2 green onions, tops and ends removed

1/2 cup of fresh dill, stems removed

1 garlic clove

1/8 tsp. salt


1. In a food processor finely chop the dill, green onions and garlic.

2. In a small bowl stir together the yogurt, sour cream, herbs and salt. It is best if this settles for at least 10 minutes before serving to let the flavors really mingle, but if you must serve immediately. This will store nicely in Tupperware for 5 days.

Makes 1 cup of dip.
