Garlic Dill Greek Yogurt Dip

I didn’t exactly grow up in the south, but I know a thing or two about ranch dressing.

In the south, people put ranch on everything. Pizza,wings, and if you’re really lucky, a vegetable. For some people, eating dips makes the task of eating vegetables that much better. I get that. A plate full of crunchy vegetables is made about 300% better when a small bowl of dip is placed nearby.

The guilt – free mindless snack.

Recently, a friend made a similar dip for a tailgate party and was given multiple compliments, only to be embarrassed to admit that it was simply sour cream and a packet of Hidden Valley ranch mix. I assured her this was nothing to be embarrassed about and if we were all thoroughly enjoying dipping cucumbers into it, she should count it as a win.

This dip can be made entirely from fresh ingredients, however the addition of Watkin’s Garlic Dill Seasoning really elevates it, and is a bit more complex than the Hidden Valley dust you’ll find in supermarkets. (No offense to my friend πŸ™‚ ) However, if you don’t have it, don’t worry about it! It’s still got plenty of flavor without it.
