We all need help of healthy vegetable dip to eat more veggies. I make this dip, healthy homemade salad dressings and garlic hummus to make lunch boxes more exciting.

Whenever I have to bring a healthy appetizer to a party, am short on time and don’t have time to make healthy deviled eggs, this veggie dip with yogurt is my go to!

It’s so easy to make! I would rather eat vegetables without a dip than with a store bought one which is full of preservatives and lacks fresh taste.

This recipe is basically a version of my healthy ranch dressing but thicker for dipping!

What Makes Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip Healthy?

Whether it’s for a snack, the holidays, or a party, there are a few reasons we love this healthier dip!

  • Low calorie: Simple ingredients like yogurt and spices means for 1/4 cup of this dip there is just 30 calories!
  • Low fat: No cream cheese, sour cream, or mayo are found in this lower fat dip that has only 1g of fat per serving.
  • High protein: Yogurt is higher in protein and this dip contains 5g of protein per serving for a satisfying snack.
  • No preservatives: No powdered dip mix in sight for this healthy, fresh vegetable dip that is naturally gluten free!

Ingredients You’ll Need

Yogurt, dill, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

To make this Greek yogurt dip, all you need is 5 ingredients and that includes the salt and pepper!

  • Yogurt: Plain regular or plain Greek yogurt 2% higher fat is recommended for best taste.
  • Fresh herbs: Fresh dill is our favorite, but fresh parsley works too.
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Is It Better to Use Fresh Herbs or Dried Herbs in this Dip?

While fresh herbs will have the best taste with yogurt dip for veggie, if you are unable to find fresh herbs or it’s winter, dried herbs work! Use one teaspoon of dried herbs instead of one tablespoon fresh herbs.

How to Make Healthy Veggie Dip

Homemade veggie dip is so much better for you. No preservatives and way less sodium. Not to mention that it tastes better and fresh!

Serve: If you have time let dip rest for 10 minutes then serve with your favorite vegetables.

Substitutions

  • Regular yogurt: Regular yogurt contains more whey than Greek yogurt. If you have time, strain it in a colander lined with linen towel over a bowl for about 1 hour. If not, dip will accumulate more whey on top with time, just stir before serving. Either way works.
  • Herbs: While fresh are best, previously frozen are OK as well. If you are making this dip mid-winter, dried dill weed would work. Obviously not as good as fresh but you will get desired flavor pretty close.
  • Garlic powder: I used garlic powder for a subtle garlic flavor. You can use tiny grated garlic clove too.

FAQs

What type of Greek yogurt is best to use?

I usually buy yogurt with 3.5% fat content. 2% is great too. Stay away from nonfat Greek yogurt with 0% fat or low fat Greek yogurt as it tastes chalky and bland.

Why does my dip taste salty?

Veggie dip should be a bit more salty than you are used to because we are dipping unsalted veggies in it. If you plan to use this dip with chips, adjust salt accordingly.

Can I add other spices?

Sure! Fresh chives or onion powder will give it a more Greek dip ranch dip feel, a pinch of cayenne pepper will give it a kick of heat.

Serving Ideas for Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip

Here are some of the best veggies for dipping, but really anything works!

  • Mini bell peppers or sliced bell peppers
  • Carrot sticks
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Broccoli or cauliflower
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Snap peas

We also love it with crispy air fryer sweet potato fries, as a sandwich spread, and often include it as part of one of these best charcuterie board ideas when entertaining!

Storage Tips

I like to store dip in a glass Mason jar with plastic lid. I often make it right in it and shake.

Dip stays fresh in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Stir each time before serving.

    Make mine with soy yogurt since I’m lactose-intolerant. It just needed about 1tbsp of lemon juice and it tasted great.

    I also more than doubled the amount of garlic but that’s on me and my trash taste buds.

    Simple, quick, healthy and delicious!

    Made it with 3% Balkan yogurt and frozen fresh dill (I now always have fresh dill available, yay!)

    Was about to make your also delicious hummus to eat with fresh veggies but I was out of chickpeas..!

    A very good, healthy dip. I added a little of Trader Joe’s chili lime seasoning to it also because I did not have as much fresh dill as I would have liked to have had for the recipe.

    Hi Olena, I was so happy to find your site when I was looking for a veggie dip recipe. Thanks, I will give it a try.
    We live on Vancouver Island, BC too! My husband and I moved to Nanaimo in 1994 and in 2003 we moved to Nanoose Bay where we still reside with our two dogs. Just thought I would say “Hi” from one islander to another 🙂

    1. Hello Louise! I am thrilled that you found my website! Thank you for sending me a message to say hello! Vancouver island is an amazing place to live!
