Ready in just 5 minutes, this Greek yogurt veggie dip is a healthier spin on ranch dip. It’s the perfect appetizer, sandwich spread, or dressing!

greek yogurt veggie dip

This Greek yogurt veggie dip is good for any time of the year, but it’s especially perfect for upcoming holiday gatherings. When we made the change in our diet to eating mostly natural and whole ingredients, we said goodbye to conveniences like pre-made dips and dressings. I grew up on ranch powder packets mixed with sour cream to create veggie dip, which unfortunately don’t match our current desire to avoid overly processed items with mystery ingredients.

Fortunately, it only takes a few minutes more to make a dip with “real” ingredients, and it’s also healthier to boot! Take some Greek yogurt, dice up a shallot, add some spices, and voila—a healthy Greek yogurt veggie dip for your veggie trays, lunch, or a snack. We adapted this recipe from a few concepts we saw around the web, and substituted Greek yogurt for a healthier spin.

What’s in this Greek yogurt veggie dip?

The key ingredient in this recipe is — you guessed it — the Greek yogurt. It’s important that you buy a yogurt with a little bit of fat in it, otherwise this delicious dip won’t have a robust flavor. Because the spices in this recipe are so simple, you need a high-quality yogurt to make this dip shine. You could certainly choose a yogurt with a higher fat percentage, but we’ve found that 2% fat yogurt has just the right amount of creaminess while still tasting a little tart.

The shallot in this recipe is also important, as it gives this Greek yogurt veggie dip a hint of garlicky onion flavor. In a pinch, you could add a little chopped garlic and yellow onion to this recipe, but I’d avoid that if possible since this dip can easily be overpowered by such strong flavors. Shallots have a fairly mild flavor, which works well in this simple yogurt dip.

How to make Greek yogurt vegetable dip

Homemade vegetable dip couldn’t be easier to make! You simply need to mince the shallot and measure out 2 tablespoons to stir together with the rest of the ingredients. Seriously, that’s it! We used dried herbs to achieve that classic ranch flavor, so keep all the ingredients on hand for those days when you’re craving vegetable dip.

One thing to note is that when you’re prepping the shallot you need to make sure to mince it quite finely. You definitely don’t want to bite down on a large piece of raw shallot when enjoying this Greek yogurt vegetable dip. Besides that, this homemade vegetable dip recipe is foolproof!

We love making homemade versions of our favorite treats. Have you made any homemade versions of processed / store-bought food? Any favorites?

    Yum! I love this! I’ve tried various ranch recipes, none really hit the spot for me, but this is excellent! I added a teaspoon of freeze dried chives, otherwise followed this to a t! Even my husband loved it! I don’t feel guilty eating this dip, knowing exactly what’s in it!

    1. Sonja says:

      Ooo we’re so excited to hear this! Adding freeze-dried chives is a great idea — where did you find them?!

      1. Melissa says:

        I found the freeze dried chives in the spice section of my regular grocery store! Surprising since here in Canada it’s usually hard to find unusual ingredients!

  2. Casey says:

    I used fresh herbs to make it even tastier, though perhaps less ranch like. Still used the garlic powder because yum!

  3. Laura says:

    So i just went to make this and I thought i had parsley but I don’t. help!! Leave it out? Substitute it with basil? I don’t know what to do!

    1. Sonja says:

      Yes, you can leave it out! Maybe go 1 1/2 teaspoons on the dill to compensate. Good luck!

  4. Karen says:

    Just made this and it definitely was easier than a pre mix packet! I think I got a super strong shallot though, the flavor is very strong-and I used less than called for. Oh well just can’t talk too close too people :)
