A few years ago I had the luck of trying a dip from Trader Joe’s that rocked the socks right off my body. It was a greek yogurt based dip, packed with veggies and savory goodness but, although tasty, I’m a dip from scratch gal.
After experimenting with the recipe, checking a few other basic greek yogurt recipes and adding my own flare, here it is. A slammin’ success at the Secret Santa party, the Kale and Collards Greek yogurt Dip:
1 17 oz container greek yogurt (0% or 2% will do)
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp honey
1 cup chopped kale
1 cup chopped collards
3 green onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup red pepper, finely chopped
1/3 cup carrots, peeled and finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped water chestnuts
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp smoked paprika (I use Burbon Smoked)
- After all is chopped and ready, combine ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
- Allow dip to sit for at least an hour. This will allow the spices to soak and the greens to soften. Serve with chips, veggies, or whatever ya like and enjoy!
PS: The dip was such a Secret Santa hit I thought I might have my dear friend, Molly, model it for us.
