You know how it goes – there are many holiday parties on your calendar. You need to come up with some dish to pass ideas. You want to be able to eat something healthy, but not be “that” person with the store purchased veggie tray.
You want something thought out, something with some heart and soul in it. You want something cute, but something that will WOW others around you.
Great news! Greek Yogurt is the new cauliflower – it can become anything! Greek Yogurt can become a taco dip, a cookie dough, a pumpkin pie filling, a cheese cake, and in this case – a ranch flavored appetizer. Score! The recipe is at the bottom!
Essentially you can do this with any veggies you want. But I found it easiest to use yellow squash, zucchini and cucumbers and cherry tomatoes for the top. One of each veggie made about two dozen bites. As far as your Greek Yogurt ranch dip, you’ll need Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt – this is the only Greek Yogurt without added sugars and the only one that has higher protein than carbs. For your ranch flavoring, you’ll need garlic, onion, dill, Italian seasoning.
You can see from the photos that you basically need to slice your veggies, top with your Greek Yogurt Dip mix and then top with a half a cherry tomato. Presented on a beautiful platter, it brighens up a holiday party, bring a healthy option to those trying to maintain balance in their nutrition, and becomes a great conversation starter at a party.
Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip:
1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
