When it comes to healthy snacks, I typically go for bite sized appetizers like low carb steak fajita sliders or something cheesy, like a bacon chipotle cheddar cheese ball. But lately, I’ve had a big craving for dips.

My low fat chocolate chip peanut butter dip is one of the most popular recipes on this site. But rather than making another sweet dip, I’m going savory this time. With Greek yogurt and cream cheese in my fridge, this dip was destined to be.

  1. I checked out all the recipes, couldn’t find a loser in the bunch!
    Well done! Probably take me a year to assimilate them but it’s a goal worth setting up. This presentation is for all my future needs not just Super Bowl Sunday!

  2. I love dips! This looks like a winner. Aside from serving it with fresh vegetables, what varieties of healthy carbohydrates or breads do you think can go well with it? Thanks!

    1. Hi Rachel! Thanks for the comment 🙂
      Some healthy carbs that would be great “transportation devices” for this yogurt dip would be whole grain pita chips (you can make your own by cutting up whole wheat pitas, drizzling with olive oil, salt, and maybe some garlic powder, then baking at 400 F. for about 6-7 minutes.
      There are also some low carb “bread” and cracker recipes out on the Internet that you can try. Warning: Some of them are, umm… really poor bread impostors. 😉

  3. YUMMMMM. No need to enter me in the giveaway but gosh does this recipe look tasty. Dill-cucumber is a killer combo – I love putting a dip like this on EVERYTHING – sandwiches! Vegetables! Pizza? Maybe. 😉

    1. Oh man, Jessie. I bet you’re right.. this dill cucumber dip would be AMAZING on those little pizza bites that people serve as appetizers. Or those dainty finger sandwiches that people serve at baby showers. YUM!
