I meant to make this dip on Sunday to enjoy with the day's football games, but life happened and I only managed to make game day chili. However, what do you know, now it's Thursday and there's another football game on. Since the Packers are playing (Go Pack Go!, etc.), I figured I might as well make the dip for tonight's game. However, what I forgot to remember was that the game is only aired on the NFL network (which we don't subscribe to) ... I'm sure a sports bar wouldn't mind if I brought along my own snacks, right? (Ha!) Ah well, I'm sure it will work just as well as a pre-game snack. Whatever the case, with its fresh ingredients and nonfat Greek yogurt base, this dip is a healthy alternative to the tubs of pre-prepared dips you can purchase at the grocery store. And with just a few ingredients, it's super easy to make, too.
Herbed Garlic Greek Yogurt Dip
makes one cup
1 cup plain Greek Yogurt (I used Chobani 0%)
2 tablespoons fresh chives, snipped (or finely minced)
1 teaspoon fresh dill, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, pressed (or finely minced)
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1. In a medium bowl, stir together all the ingredients.
2. Spoon the dip into a container with a lid.
3. Chill in the fridge for one hour (or overnight) to allow the flavors a chance to meld together.
4. Serve with chips or dip-friendly veggies such as carrots, celery, or broccoli florets.
