Anytime Greek Yogurt DipPrint Recipe
- 1 cup full fat greek yogurt ( I use Fage)
- 2 tbsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 tp freshly ground Himalayan pink salt
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp dry spice- za'tar spice or fresh dried herb of choice are good choices ( in the photo I used a chimichurri blend that has no garlic powder)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- dash lemon zest
In the serving bowl place in the yogurt and add the dry spices, the salt, pepper, seasoning of choice and lemon zest.
Give it a stir before adding in the dijon and olive oil and stir to fully incorporate, serve immediately and store leftovers in the fridge, they wont last long.
Snacking is my thing, snacking or eating anything with a dip is even better. This is such an easy and healthy alternative to store bought dips that there is really no excuse to whip it up. It goes onto sandwiches as a spread, pairs with crudities and stays in the fridge for as long as your yogurt is good. Even if you find yourself in a pinch, for example, you really over cooked that piece of cod and need to slather it with something to hide that fact, this is your go to. Protein packed from the Greek yogurt and easy to flavor with any herbs or spices you like that blend with what you’ve cooked, it comes together in under 5 minutes. I always like an element of freshness in everything I eat so I recommend adding fresh basil, parsley, or zest from a grapefruit, lime, orange or lemon. The combos for this dip are really endless so have fun with it and get creative, but just incase your juices are flowing, because you know they’re a tad overcooked right now too…. here are some awesome combinations for you to try.
A. Remove dry spice and dijon from Anytime Greek Yogurt Dip and add 1 tbsp grapefruit zest, 3 segments of slice grapefruit pulp, a squeeze of lime, sliced serrano pepper and cilantro to top on pork.
B. Choose plain oregano for your dry spice and add in sliced Kalmata olives, fresh basil and grape tomatoes.
C. Keep the dry spice as za’tar and add finely chopped parsley, a few mint leaves and 1 extra tbsp of olive oil. I hear that bread calling to be bathed in it…
D. Dessert spread! Remove all the below indegreidents except for your 1 cup yogurt. Add 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tbsp black or toasted sesame seeds, 1 tbsp cacao powder and 2 tbsp maple syrup.
