Tips, Tricks, and Serving Suggestions
This Greek yogurt dip is super straightforward to make, but a few simple fixes can really kick the flavor up a notch.
- Add Lemon: A squeeze of lemon or dash of lemon pepper will give your dip a pop of tasty Mediterranean flavor!
- Let it Chill: I always like to let my dip sit in the fridge for an hour or two so the flavors have time to meld. Similarly, you may want to go easy on the seasonings at first since it takes time for them to infuse in the yogurt.
- Use Fresh Herbs: Dried herbs are usually what I use since I have them on hand, but if you really want to take this dip to the next level, use fresh chopped herbs! They make everything taste better.
- Add Vinegar: If you’re a lover of tangy dips, try adding a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar!
