Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip
I don’t know about you guys, but I love a good ranch dip. I feel like it’s a pretty controversial topic; you either love ranch or you don’t want it anywhere near your plate.
Most friends I know don’t like it because of the mayonnaise or buttercream base which is where this awesome recipe comes in. The base is plain Greek yogurt which is tart, yet mild making it a fantastic switch.
The dip itself isn’t too tart with the addition of all of the herbs and spices and, really, it just turns into an addicting dip.
How to Make Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip:
Y’all it is so easy.
- Measure out all of the ingredients.
- Add all of them into a bowl.
- Mix together.
- If you get crazy, use a food processor to mix all the ingredients real good.
It is as simple as that! I’ll take those few steps for a quick alternative.
Is Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip healthier than regular ranch?
You bet your bottom dollar it is. Greek yogurt as a base means about 2 tablespoons of this dip are about 20 calories. It’s also full of protein!
Compare that to 2 tablespoons of regular ranch dressing being 130 calories. Yeah I’ll take Greek Yogurt Ranch dip any day.
What can I use this dip for?
- Veggie platters
- Salad dressing
- Pretty much anything because ranch is life
If you’re looking for a spicy version of this dip, try out this Chipotle Greek Yogurt Dip! It’s made with one chipotle pepper giving the whole dip a nice smokey and spicy twist.
How long does Greek Yogurt Ranch dip last?
Take note of the date on the greek yogurt container. It should usually last at least a week or two after that “sell-by” date as long as it’s been refrigerated correctly and tightly sealed while stored.
This awesome article by Bustle explains a little more on how you can absolutely eat yogurt products after their expiration date in case you don’t believe me.

What would you suggest to thin it for a pourable salad dressing? Buttermilk is used with mayonnaise

I think adding some lemon juice and/or olive oil could help thin it out a bit!

I don't like ranch or creamy dips/dressings really. But I made this for a small gathering to accompany a veggie platter and other dips. Everyone really liked it...I even tried a bite. Reminds me of Cool Ranch Doritos, rather than the bland mayo-ish Hidden Valley type of ranch.

This turned out amazing. I substituted the fresh chive for dry because it was what i had on hand, but other then that I followed it exactly. I’m in love! I’ll definitely be making this recipe over and over.
