Creamy Dill Dip
Write a review
- ½ cup feta, finely crumbled
- 1 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- ½ cup cucumber, seeded and diced
- 1 T fresh dill, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ½ t garlic salt
- ½ t sea salt
- Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- Chill until ready to serve along with fresh cut vegetables or brown rice crackers.
- This is a very good "base" recipe that allows you to play around with the ingredients if you like changing things up a bit.
- We used fresh dill in this recipe because Kate's growing it in her garden, but if you don't have any on hand, you could try substituting it with dried dill weed. The general rule of thumb when substituting fresh herbs with dried is a 3:1 ratio. There are 3 tsp in 1 T, so you can try substituting the 1 T of fresh dill with 1 tsp of dried. Keep in mind that generally speaking, fresh herbs will typically give a stronger (and often better, to be honest) taste, so depending on how long dried herbs have been stored etc., it can be quite a bit different than if you were to use fresh. But if you're willing to give it a whirl, go for it :).
- If you like a strong garlic taste, you can certainly add another ½ to even 1 whole clove of garlic. We kept it simple with 1 so as to not overtake the taste of the dill, but that's really a matter of personal preference. Alternatively, you could also add another ½ tsp of garlic salt, especially if you like things on the saltier side.
- So feel free to experiment away and enjoy creating a recipe that's tailored exactly to your unique tastes/preferences!
