Veggie Dip

In developing this recipe, I was inspired by Debbie Does Dinner. I love the idea of a low-calorie and low-fat veggie dip. It makes sense, doesn't it? If I'm going muster up the strength to bypass the cookies and snack on some carrot sticks, I don't want to ruin the effort with an unhealthy dip.

This dip uses Greek yogurt as its base, which has a similar taste and texture to sour cream but sports a much friendlier nutrition label. One batch of this recipe contains roughly 75 calories and 4 grams of fat, and makes enough to share with a couple of friends.


1/3 c fat-free Greek yogurt
1 tbsp light mayonnaise
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 tsp freeze dried chives
1/8 tsp onion powder

1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Enjoy with cut veggies.

  3. This looks so good! I've no idea what seasoned salt is, but I think I can probably find it in the spices aisle (I hope!).

    I think maybe I'll make some this week to eat with veggies to make up for all the candy I've been eating for Halloween!

  4. Abby, Why didn't I think of this? I am sure glad you did! I have a house full of young adults this weekend and I am making your dip! It looks scrumptious! A great way to get protein and calcium in my diet too!
