If you’re cooking for one or two people, making your own dressings and dips is a great way to avoid food waste. You can whip up just what you need and not have to worry about finishing off a big bottle.

This quick salsa dip is one of our favorite easy recipes. It’s tangy and creamy with just the right amount of spicy heat.

We use it to top everything from baked potatoes and nachos to burrito bowls and veggie wraps. I’ve even been known to dip a crispy grilled cheese sandwich in it!

Recipe Ingredients

Plain Greek Yogurt: I like to use a low-fat variety because it’s tangy but not too tangy and feels rich without being overwhelming. 

Salsa: The thinner consistency of salsa verde makes it easy to mix into the yogurt. Our favorite brand, La Costeña, has loads of flavors from garlic, peppers, and tomatillos. But it is on the spicier side. If you’re looking for a tamer option (that won’t tickle your throat), Herdez makes a tasty mild green salsa.

Lime Juice (or zest): The juice adds a zippy fun flavor and helps to thin out the dip. If the dip is already at your desired thickness, skip the juice and add some lime zest instead. It’ll perk up the dip without thinning it out!

Instructions

1. Stir together 3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of salsa. If the dip is too thick, stir in the lime juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.

2. To make a pourable salad dressing, mix in extra lime juice or water. The total amount of juice needed will really depend on how thick your Greek yogurt and salsa are and how thin you like your dressing. 

Don’t be afraid to keep tasting and adjusting the different ingredient amounts until you find what works best for you.
