If you like Greek-style cucumber dip, you’ll love this dill-icious version with herbs and pomegranate.
If you’re not familiar with Greek yogurt, it is yogurt that has been strained (typically in cheesecloth or a coffee filter) to remove the whey. Greek yogurt has a rich, creamy and thick consistency yet it still maintains the yogurt tang that we know and love. Plus, Greek yogurt is much lower in fat than traditional yogurt, making it an excellent substitution for traditional yogurt, mayonnaise and sour cream. And it’s perfect for dips!
When I think of Greek yogurt, my first thought is Tzatziki, the cool and creamy cucumber dip served with many Greek dishes. We love it! The dip I share here is like a cousin to Tzatziki. It starts with Greek yogurt and is flavored with garlic, fresh herbs and then something a little unexpected—pomegranate arils.
This dip is wonderful straight away. But if you’re able to let it sit refrigerated for a spell, the flavors will only intensify and the dip will thicken.
It’s perfect spread onto pita bread triangles (and even bagels) or served as a dipping sauce for vegetables.
It gives a pop of fresh flavor in your mouth that marries all of the flavors together. In no time, it will have you yelling, “Opa!”
