When you need a quick and easy snack, Greek yogurt dip is the perfect solution. It comes together in just about 5 minutes and is easy to customize. Plus, you can make it ahead.

There’s nothing terribly complicated about this recipe, but we love the fact that it’s made with all yogurt — so many herbed dips are made with a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise, making for a heavier appetizer. This yogurt is thick and creamy, yet simultaneously light and tangy.

Tips for Making Yogurt Dip

  • Use what you have. Don’t have dill? You can skip the extra trip the store and make do with what you have. Think of the herbs as something you season with to taste.
  • Mellow it out with sour cream. If you want to tone down the tang, sub in half the amount of yogurt for sour cream.
  • Make it ahead. You can double (or triple!) the recipe and make it a few days in advance so you’ve always got a bit in the refrigerator.
