Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach (approx. 1 handful)
  • 3 TBSP chopped green onion (extra to garnish)
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 7-8 oz plain 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill (fresh works too!)
  • 1 fresh round loaf of bread from the bakery of your local supermarket, or your favorite stand alone bakery. Cut the top off (chop it for dippers) and hollow out the center - easy peasy! You can even bake a fresh loaf yourself (ummmm bake me one too?!) and use it for this recipe.

DELISH DIPPERS:

  • chopped bread or crostini
  • carrots
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • cucumber slices
  • celery sticks
  • bell pepper slices
  • pita chips
  • and anything your heart desires!

Instructions

  1. Chop your veggies and squeeze the zucchini dry with a few paper towels to remove excess liquid.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. Pop it in the refrigerator overnight and serve the next day with all your favorite dippers. Dip will stay fresh and delicious for up to 4 days in the fridge.
  4. Serve it in a bread bowl (see above for instructions), in hollowed out bell peppers, or your favorite bowl. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

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. Delicious, edible science!

Ran out of Greek yogurt? No worries! You can use a little extra mayo and sour cream to make up the missing cup. Easy peasy!

optional fresh chopped veggies for topping: tomato, onion, spinach, etc...
