This Greek yogurt cucumber dill dip is one of my new go to vegetable dips. 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.

How To Make This Recipe

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. 

Step 1:

Place finely diced cucumber in medium bowl. Add salt and mix well.

Step 2:

Transfer cucumber and salt mixture to a colander. Allow water to drain from cucumber, about 20 minutes. The salt will help draw out the excess water. 

Step 3:

While the cucumbers are draining, add the Greek yogurt, dill weed, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to medium sized bowl.

Step 4:

Once the cucumbers are done draining, add them to the rest of the ingredients and mix together well.

You can also add to salmon, steak, spread on burgers, or anywhere you would use dressings.

    I love using Greek yogurt for dips, it has the perfect consistency and such a nice flavour. This kind of thing is delicious to just have a plate of your favourite veggies chopped up and enjoy. My kind of movie snack.
