Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • This dip goes great with any vegetables or even crackers. You can mix and match anything for this!
  • Make your own gyros. Serve this dip in whole wheat pita pockets with thinly sliced grilled chicken or beef, sliced onions and tomatoes, and shredded lettuce.
  • Turn this dip into a tasty cucumber dressing for salads. Thin the dip with some low-fat milk, a splash of vinegar, and a splash of olive oil. Mix the dressing and adjust liquids and seasonings for the desired thickness and taste.
