One of my favorite snacks to make is veggies and dip. But everyone knows that store-bought dips are LOADED with fat and calories (That is why they taste so good!). Luckily, you can still have a delicious dip that is low in fat and calories. And best of all? It’s 21 day fix approved! This is my recipe for healthy low-fat Greek Yogurt Dill Dip (or salad dressing). You can use it as a dip for freshly cut veggies like carrot and celery sticks. Or you can use it as a creamy dressing as I will show below!
- 1 red container of Plain or Greek Yogurt (1% fat)
- 1 Tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of fresh or dried dill weed
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder or 1 clove of minced garlic
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
- Add salt and black pepper until you get the taste you like best.
- Let the dip sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving to let the flavors come out.
- Use as a dip or salad dressing.
The entire recipe is he equivalent of 1 red container (protein) and 1 teaspoon of your oils allowance
You can enjoy this recipe either by using dry ingredients you have on hand (dried dill weed and garlic powder). But if you want more intense and fresh flavors, use freshly chopped dill and minced garlic!
This recipe is a serving size for one (1 red 21 day fix container and 1 tsp of oil). Double the recipe if you are planning on serving it as a dip for the family or want to store some for use later on in the week! The dip will last for up to four days in the fridge if you keep it in a air-tight sealed container.
How Can I Make a Healthy Salad With This Dressing?
I love to make this as a creamy dill salad dressing to use on top of my Spiralized cucumber noodles.
One of the best kitchen gadgets I’ve ever come across is the Spiralizer.
With this device I can turn all my veggies into spiral noodles and it feels like I’m eating a hearty bowl of pasta (veggie pasta that is!) It’s way more fun to eat cucumber noodles than cucumber slices.>>You can get your own Spiralizer on Amazon by clicking here!
If you decide to use the dip above as a dressing, you can either use half of it for a lightly creamy base. Or (as I do) you can use the entire serving to have your noodles smothered in cool creamy dressing!
Here, I spiralize a cucumber and add some cherry tomatoes and freshly ground pepper on top. This entire meal/snack is 1 red container, 1 tsp of oil, and 2 green containers of your daily allowance.
