So this recipe is for a homemade ranch-like dip. This dip tasted so fresh and delicious. I’m a big fan of the recipe for a lot of reasons:
- It is homemade and free of preservatives and ingredients I can’t pronounce
- It uses ingredients I often have on hand (thanks to freeze dried spices, and powdered sour cream)
- I can make it as thick or thin as I would like depending on how much liquid I add
- The fresh (or freeze dried) instead of dehydrated spices made it delicious!
1 c plain greek yogurt (full fat)
1/2 c. sour cream (or sour cream powder)
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dill
1/4 t. pepper
3 T. minced fresh parsley
2 T. minced fresh chives
salt to taste
Since I couldn’t help but put a home store spin on the recipe, I’ll explain what I did. For the sour cream, I used sour cream powder and I put the same amount, and then just added water until I got the texture I wanted. I was using this for a salad dressing, so I went a little on the runnier side than a dip would be. I also added a teeny bit of lime juice, since I opted to use cilantro instead of dill. I like this because sour cream is something I never have on hand.
I also used freeze dried spices… which are currently my favorite! If you haven’t tried them, you really need to. They act like fresh spices instead of dehydrated. The spice line is somewhat limited but you can check out the current options and buy them at discounted prices at our Thrive Life store here.
