Greek Yogurt Cucumber Dill Dip- Gluten-Free, Keto, Low-Calorie
Greek yogurt cucumber dill dip is full of flavor and goes well with vegetables, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and meat.
This Greek yogurt cucumber dill dip is one of my new go to vegetable dips. It reminds me of dipping my vegetables in ranch, only better. A lot of similar dips use mayonnaise or sour cream as a base which can be very fattening and high in calories. I use Greek yogurt here and the flavors are just as good, if not better. Once Greek yogurt is flavored it still has the same creamy texture.
Aside from vegetables, this dip also goes well with pita chips, on salads, and as a spread for sandwiches and wraps. It’s also a great sauce or side with meat dishes. The possibilities are endless. It’s light, fresh, and goes well with many different types of foods.
The fresh dill really takes this dip to the next level. Dried dill can be used if that is what is available, but I think the fresh dill gives a flavor pop here. Putting the dip together is a simple process. Before adding the cucumbers to the dip, they need to be strained of excess water, or it will make the dip runny. To do this mix some salt to the finely diced cucumbers, then place them in a strainer. The salt will help draw out the excess water. I let it stand for about 20 minutes, then it should be good to go.
While the cucumbers are draining, add the Greek yogurt, dill weed, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to medium sized bowl. Then once the cucumbers are done draining, add them o the rest of the ingredients and mix together well.
