Cucumber-Chive Greek Yogurt Dip

Tzatziki is always my favorite part of any Greek meal. Tangy and refreshing, even the most delicious pita bread becomes a mere vehicle for the tzatziki. This weekend, I created my own version of the Greek classic to usher in summer. This was absolutely perfect alongside steak and Italian-style potato salad (no mayo — it’s the best)! This would be equally delicious with chips as a healthier version of onion dip. And it tasted even better the next day with carrot sticks as an afternoon snack.


This dip is impeccably healthy and flavorful, despite omitting the usual ingredients of garlic and dill. This recipe is also totally versatile and customizable. If you have a mint or basil plant growing in the yard, feel free to add it on in. The more the merrier. And the best part, it can be assembled in 3 minutes flat. My kind of recipe.

Cucumber-Chive Greek Yogurt Dip

2 6oz containers 2% Greek Yogurt (Fage is my favorite)

small handful chives cut crosswise into small pieces
sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Grate cucumber with a cheese grater. Mix into yogurt. Add red wine vinegar and dijon mustard. Add chives. Season to taste and serve chilled with vegetables, pita chips, pita bread, etc.
