I often joke that I can turn pretty much anything into a dip. Whether we’re in the throes of Summer barbecue season or partying it up all Winter long, I’ve always got a new dip creation/experimentation in the mix each and every week. My favorites get jotted down to share on the blog, which has left me with a pretty hefty list of goodies to share!

With New Years Eve party shenanigans on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to break out the dip! Even better? This lightened up veggie dip will help you get a jump on your healthy resolutions, so snag a bag or two of Food Should Taste Good tortilla chips and a pile of crunchy veggies and meet me in the kitchen!

Healthy Garden Veggie Dip

The delish appetizer I’m sharing today takes the classic veggie dip to a new level!

Typically veggie dips are seasoned with an array of seasonings mixed with some dehydrated or powdered veggie situation to give it a burst of flavor. I like to take things one step further and season my veggie dip with fresh herbs, veggies, and a few dried seasonings to take the flavor up notch. The combination always results in someone trying to dunk their hand (or face!) into the bowl. I’m surrounded by class acts, I tell ya!

I also swapped the token mayo for some healthy Greek yogurt, because that’s how we roll around here.

Get your dippers ready – it’s time to dive in!

Healthy Garden Veggie Dip

Prep

Total

Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/2 cups light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder or dried minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 TBSP fresh chopped green onion, plus extra to taste
  • 1/4 cup finely grated carrot (1/2 a carrot)
  • 1/4 cup broccoli florets (just the tippy tops)

DELISH DIPPERS:

Instructions

  1. For the carrot, shred using the fine side of your favorite cheese grater, it's super easy!
  2. For the broccoli, use kitchen scissors or a pairing knife to remove just the tippity top of the florets (no stems whatsoever) from the broccoli.
  3. Combine all ingredients and mix.
  4. Adjust seasoning to taste as needed. 
  5. Pop it in the fridge overnight to allow the flavors to amplify.
  6. I've made this dip a few times now and I have to admit that it's not a whisk-together-and-faceplant kind of dip. The real deliciousness happens when the herbs, seasoning, and veggies get up close and personal in the fridge. Trust me, it's exponentially better if you let it sit overnight. It's science. Food Science. Do the right thing!
  7. Serve dip alongside all your favorite dippers and a mountain of Food Should Taste Good tortilla chips and watch it disappear!

Notes

If you're not a fan of greek yogurt in dips (I'll forgive you!) feel free to use a 1/2 cup of your favorite quality mayonnaise instead. I love pretty much all dairy ever so I'll happily scarf either!

Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

These chips – gah! The multigrain chips as well as the sweet potato tortilla chips (holy cow delicious!) from Food Should Taste Good have been a pantry staple around here for ages. I first discovered the brand 5 years ago and have been obsessed ever since!

The fact that they’re perfectly seasoned, non-GMO, certified gluten free, and packed with sketch-free deliciousness means I can feel better about my tortilla chip obsession. Seriously, give me chips and dip over dessert any day of the week!

You guys have GOT to hunt down their lime tortilla chips by the way, I cannot stress that enough. I had to hide the bag from my husband so I could use them with this delish dip recipe and even then he managed to find them and inhale half the bag! The nerve right? I’ll for sure be stocking up next time.

so . . . how was it?!

Phenomenal! I’m so obsessed with this dip it’s ridiculous. It’s like a ranch dip got busy with a veggie dip and magic happened. Typically you only see the actual veggies beside the dip for dunking, but chopping up fresh carrot, broccoli, and green onion and letting them in on the fun with the herbs and spices is totally the way to go!

Since the flavors need a few hours in the fridge to mingle and amplify, it’s strictly make-ahead, which is a total lifesaver in my book! Make-ahead means I can whip it up for a gathering the night before while my chickpea is fast asleep and not scaling my leg trying to eat all the dip. Make-ahead means I can spend more time primping before a friend’s party or potluck because my dish is already chillin’ like a villian in the fridge. Make-ahead means THERE’S SO MUCH TIME FOR ACTIVITIES!!!

Now I totally have to go watch that movie.

Annie @ Annie's Noms

This looks so creamy and delicious! Chips and dips are the best!

Christina @ Christina's Cucina

This sort of dip always gets me to eat more veggies! Great flavours!

Vicky @ Avocado Pesto

I’m a sucker for dipping chips and veggies into powdered ranch mixed with sour cream and mayo but I’ve got to try your much healthier and delicious sounding lighter veggie dip next time!

Melissa

If I don’t have light sour cream, what can sub? More greek yogurt?

    Jenn

    Hey Melissa! Go for it! I’d choose a 2% Greek if you have it since a little healthy fat will help the antioxidants in the veggies get absorbed/utilized plus it will be creamier than using all 0% — but either should work!

Darlene

All the ingredients I love, made it, let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours. Sorry but this is so very bland and just does not taste good at all.

    Jenn

    Gahhh so so sorry to hear it Darlene! Did you make any swaps by any chance or use a different version of a particular ingredient (like a fat free sour cream?) Trying to troubleshoot if possible, so thank you for any input you can offer here! It’s been a hit at all the parties I’ve served it at and I’m super bummed it came out bland for you. If you still have it handy I would increase the salt and seasonings to your liking, as they’re super customizable if you prefer more garlic/onion/salt/etc. Thanks for the feedback!

Jill Tinney

This is my go to veggie dip! My family and I love it every time. I served this at my daughters birthday party last November and there wasn’t a drop left, even the kiddos loved it. Keep all the yummy recipes coming Jenn.
