Cucumber-Feta-Yogurt Veggie Dip
Traditional sour cream-based vegetable dips usually contain about 60 calories and 5 grams of fat in a 2 tablespoon portion. By substituting Greek yogurt and adding vegetables to this tasty dip, we cut the calories and fat by about 40% without compromising taste!
- 2 6 oz. containers 0% fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded, finely chopped and squeezed dry in paper towels
- 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 scallions (green onions), sliced thin
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. Serve with carrot and celery sticks.
