- Free of artificial colors and flavors.
- Much economical.
Ingredients & Variations
Greek Yogurt – Greek yogurt gives this dip a healthy touch, without losing on the creaminess. Regular yogurt can also be used, but Greek yogurt is recommended for a creamier texture.
Tip – To make thick yogurt using plain yogurt, line a fine-mesh strainer with a muslin cloth. Add the yogurt to the strainer and let it sit over a bowl for 20 minutes. All the extra water will drip down and you will get thick yogurt.
Mayonnaise – The full-fat mayonnaise gives you a creamier dip. You can also choose light mayo to save on some calories.
Sour Cream – Adds a slightly tangy taste along with adding to the creamy texture. I have a super simple recipe to make sour cream at home. Do check it out.
Italian Seasoning – Italian seasoning adds in more flavors making the dip even more addictive.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Use a high-quality one!
Others – You will also need garlic, lime juice, lime zest, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
Lime juice and zest can be replaced with lemon juice and zest.
You can also add fresh herbs like fresh parsley, fresh chives, or basil but the shelf life will reduce a little.
Add a little heat to the dip by adding some hot sauce or cayenne pepper.
